Don't miss this unique and historical concert performance!

The s级素人 Music Department continues its Visiting Artist series by presenting in our opening concert of the 2024-25 academic year... the 1st Brigade Band!

In 1864, eighteen men from the Brodhead Brass Band enlisted in the Union Army and became the 1st Brigade Band, 3rd Division, 15th Army Corps. The "Tradition of Excellence" that these men established more than 150 years ago continues today with the members of the 1st Brigade Band.

The band MAKES HISTORY LIVE by presenting period brass band music, performed on antique instruments. Attired in uniforms and gowns, the Band鈥檚 musicians, color guard, and costumed ladies take you back to the 1860鈥檚; to that turbulent era known as the Civil War. A nostalgic portrayal of the atmosphere of days gone by is generated by a unique form of showmanship that blends the sights and sounds of the period with historical anecdotes.
