Omaha Brass Ensemble Performs at Strauss Performing Arts Center March 25
Omaha - The Omaha Brass Ensemble (OBE) will close out the month of March with a tribute to marching music.
The ensemble will be performing the concert “Mostly Marches” at the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s (UNO) Strauss Performing Arts Center Sunday, March 25 at 7 p.m.
Marches have provided the musical backdrop for an immense number of social and civic functions for centuries. This showcase will include works that span a broad range of musical styles, represented by such composers as Byrd, King, Sousa, Ippolitov-Ivanov and Rimsky-Korsakov.
Michael Thompson and Ken Kielniarz, as an extension of the Palladium Brass Quintet, created the OBE in the mid 1990’s. The mission of the OBE is to provide the community with a concert series of large brass ensemble music.
Members of the OBE hold positions in many of the area orchestras and chamber ensembles and are active as soloists and educators.
Admission to the performance is $15 for the general public and $5 for students and seniors. UNO students, faculty and staff will be admitted for free with their MavCard. Tickets can be purchased at the door the day of the show or in advance at TicketOmaha.
