1st Nebraska’s 2019 performance season is about to begin! We start on Sunday, May 26, in Superior, Nebraska with a concert for the Superior Victorian Days festival. The band last played in Superior in 2017 and are returning by popular demand.
Superior has a very nice band shell in its City Park that also hosts a memorial to its fallen Civil War soldiers. The large park is shaded by mature trees, has convenient parking, and houses the city swimming pool. All in all, it’s a wonderful performance venue.
Our concert will begin at 2:00, and will include patriotic songs from the North and South, popular songs of the day by composers such as Stephen C. Foster, and even a piece from a well-known opera of the period. The program is narrated to inform the audience of the significance of the music and the roles the bands played during the Civil War.
The concert is free to the public thanks to the sponsorship of the Superior Chamber of Commerce.
If you’re in the South-central Nebraska area on Memorial weekend stop over and enjoy the concert!
