Concert Preview - Milwaukee Festival Brass

The Milwaukee Festival Brass will perform a special concert of Christmas Music on Sunday December 20 at 3 PM in the Schwan Concert Hall on the campus of Wisconsin Lutheran College. The theme is Christmas for Kids and the concert features the Milwaukee Festival Youth Brass Band.

The MFB will perform with the Youth Brass on three selections, including the World Premiere of The Twelve Days of Christmas, penned by Music Director Dr. Pat Bachhaus.

Lots of other favorite tunes and carols will fill the hall, by the likes of Brass Band composers William Himes, Philip Sparke, James Curnow, and Goff Richards. Should be a very nice concert; but then the MFB concerts are always entertaining! Don't miss it. I know I won't!

One important note: the Milwaukee Festival Brass is teaming up with the U.S. Marine Corps' Toys For Tots Campaign. So, bring a new toy to the concert, and the Marines will be sure to get it to kids that might otherwise not have a happy Christmas. We can't let that happen!

See you there!
