The first performance of 2016 kicks-off on Sunday, February 28 at Christ Lutheran Church in Blair, Ne. We’ll be providing service music and playing some of our favorite Civil War tunes during the fellowship hour.
The pre-service music begins at 8:25 with “O, For A Thousand Tongues to Sing” an exciting fanfare-like arrangement sure to wake everyone up, ready to lift their hearts in worship. During the service we’ll play on the congregational hymns, and play a special arrangement of “It Is Well with My Soul.”
Following the service we’ll move to the fellowship hall for coffee and baked goods and Civil War music. We’ll begin playing a new (to us) arrangement of Dixie’s Land Quickstep, and the Soldier’s Chorus from the opera “Faust” (1859) by French composer Charles Gounod. This arrangement comes from the 3rd New Hampshire Band. In addition we’ll play several of our regular patriotic and popular songs.
So, get up early on Sunday and travel to Blair. Meet the very friendly folks at the church and listen to some great music. Hope to see you there!

What an awesome experience to have the 1st Nebraska Volunteers Brass Band participate in our worship this morning! They added an element of praise and beauty to our gathering. Then, during our fellowship time, they shared more of their wonderful music. Thanks to Bill Hall and the entire band for sharing their gifts with us today.

Thanks, Pastor Mark. We had a great time playing at Christ Lutheran. It’s a pleasure to worship with friendly people, and anointed worship and preaching.
