UNO, Department of Music to Host Inaugural 'Brass Day' Feb. 7
Omaha - University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) students and faculty will be performing as part of the Department of Music’s inaugural Brass Day event on Tuesday, Feb. 7.
Brass Day was organized, as a follow up to the department's annual "Low Brass Day," to expose students to challenging musical pieces and focus on the fundamental skills required for good ensemble playing. As a result, dozens of high school musicians from throughout the Midwest will join UNO students for a free public concert at 4:30 p.m. in the Strauss Performing Arts Center Recital Hall.
After the free concert, the public is encouraged to return to Strauss for a 7 p.m. concert put on by the Omaha Brass Ensemble.
Tickets can be purchased at the door or at ticketomaha.com and are $15 for adults and $5 for students with ID. UNO students and faculty will be admitted for free with a valid MavCard.
Other events scheduled for the day include a performance by the Brass Day faculty and a master class led by experts in the field.
Participants can register the day of the event at Strauss starting at 8:30 a.m. with warm ups scheduled for 9 a.m. Those who choose to register are required to bring their instrument, a lunch and dress clothes to wear during the concert.
Temporary parking permits will be handed out at the registration desk.
