The Nebraska Brass Band

A Fanfare of Praise: A Celebration of the Greatest Hymns & Songs

 Saturday, November 9, 2024 @ 7 p.m.

The Nebraska Brass Band (NEBB) was conceived over lunch at a Runza restaurant. With an absence of a British-style brass band in the local area, phone calls followed, and a brass band was born.

The NEBB, consisting of thirty-four musicians, has attracted professional players from all areas of Nebraska and even beyond. Band members are all volunteers and come from many industries, including education at all levels, former and current military personnel, medical doctors, attorneys, railroad employees, sound engineers, and human resource specialists.

Nebraska’s premiere brass band has a unique sound capable of playing whisper-soft passages and power fortissimos. NEBB performances are wonderfully entertaining and showcase a breadth of musical styles, including original symphonies, light classical, jazz, Broadway music, solo concertos, and others.

The NEBB has at least four major concerts each program season with regular rehearsals in Omaha.

The band’s Inaugural Concert was held on October 5th, 2017 to a sellout crowd. Future plans for the band include recording a Christmas CD, a tour to Mt. Rushmore, and forming the Nebraska Youth Brass Band. 

With the range and diversity of music, the NEBB offers, there is always something that everyone can enjoy. Don’t miss a fantastic opportunity to discover the world of brass banding right here in Nebraska.
