New England Brass Band Performance in Shelburne Falls

Mark your calendar! Concert in Shelburne Falls on 11/27

NEBB performing at the 2010 North American Brass Band Association Band Championships
 The Mohawk Music Association will be presenting a holiday concert by THE NEW ENGLAND BRASS BAND on Saturday, November 27 in Shelburne Falls. Our very own Mohawk Music Director, Ms. DoraThea Kastanas, plays percussion in the band!

The band is a 30-piece brass and percussion ensemble, adhering to the instrumentation of the “British Brass Band” tradition. Based in the Boston area, NEBB's players are from Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Hampshire, and Maine. Last year, they wowed the audience in Memorial Hall with an afternoon of magnificent traditional and holiday music.

This concert is a fundraiser for the Mohawk Music Association, to benefit Mohawk's music department, and a great opportunity for all our students to hear some wonderful music in our venerable Memorial Hall. Our very own MOHAWK DANCE BAND will perform at the start of the concert, too.
