As one of the nation’s oldest, continuous musical ensembles, the NYSB has rightfully been heralded as ‘America’s Foremost Brass Band.’ The NYSB also performed with the Billtown Brass in May of 2008.
“Kick Off the Holiday!” features seasonal and popular fare highlighting the power, beauty and musical majesty that brass bands are know for throughout the world.
