1st Nebraska’s next performance will be a concert/clinic at the Strategic Air & Space Museum in Ashland, NE on April 16, 2016 from 10:00-11:00 am. Our appearance is in conjunction with the museum’s “Music and Science” day. The clinic portion of our program will demonstrate how brass instruments produce sound, the effect that valves and slides have on pitch, and how the size of instruments affects sound.

The concert portion will feature music form our 2016 program including “Soldier’s Chorus from Faust,” Hunter’s Chorus from the Rose of Erin,” and “Omaha Guards Waltz. We’all also play several Civil War favorites including “When Johnny Comes Marching Home,” “Dixie,” and “When This Cruel War Is Over.”
