Join us on Saturday, July 29, 2017 at 6:00 PM at the Mount Prospect Park District, Lions Park Veterans Memorial Band Shell, 411 South Maple Street, Mount Prospect, IL for a truly unique evening of music. Two of the Midwest’s premier British style brass bands will be joining forces to present a “Brass Band Bash.”

Both bands are members of the North American Brass Band Association and all have been national champions at various times throughout their existence. It will be a lively evening filled with marches, film music, overtures, jazz, Dixieland, Broadway, hymn tunes and of course patriotic selections. The bands will each present individual programs and then the combined 60 brass players will join forces for the grand finale and encore performance. This is the first time the two bands have come together for a free summer concert in the Chicago Suburban area.
