Nebraska Brass to spike ’ j
classic carols with bounce j
By Jason Hardy
Senior staff writer
Christmas carols are like cups of
eggnog. They’re great for awhile, but
sometimes a little rum is needed to
spice things up.
Luckily for music fans, the
Nebraska Brass seems to adhere to
that same philosophy.
The Nebraska Brass has gained a
reputation because of its penchant
for fun, especially during the holi
days. This year, the group plans to
jazz up a lot of classic carols with
The group has been performing a
Christmas show every year for the
past nine years and has done just
about every song imaginable.
By embracing different arrangers
and composers, the experimental
brass ensemble continually offers
audiences a new twist to the old hol
Jason Keagy, assistant director of
Arts Incorporated, the company that
manages Nebraska Brass, said the
group offered a wide variety of
music to make the annual Christmas
concert enjoyable for everyone.
“Each year the Christmas pro
gram is the most popular of the
entire season,” Keagy said. “It seems
to attract a wider audience, so they
try to get music that will appeal to a
lot of different ages, likes and musi

to the classics, but each year differ

wanting to hear a lot of the tradition
al carols,” Keagy said. “This year,
they’re doing some unusual arrange
ments to take a traditional carol and
make it different.
“With a typical Christmas carol,
you have a certain way you’re used to
hearing it, but some of these have a
more upbeat or a funk beat to them.”
Brad Obbink, a trumpet player
for the Nebraska Brass, said one
example of the group’s experimental
appr-oaches this year will be a new
rendition of “Silent Night.”
“It isn’t necessarily the beautiful
rendition of ‘Silent Night’ that we all
know; it’s more of a reflection of
how Christmas really is,” Obbink
“The particular arranger of that
piece of music has expressed his
feelings about the carol and the sea
son, and those feelings aren’t exactly
the same feelings that we traditional
ly associate with Christmas.”
He said different arrangers
always give the songs different
moods. Nebraska Brass, he said, usu
ally tries to incorporate a number of
arrangers into each show, although it
is hard to limit their coverage.
“We have a hard time playing all
the new Christmas arrangements
that come out every year and still
playing all the things we like,”
Obbink said. “We’d like to play it all,
but there isn’t time.”
Keagy said another exciting
aspect of this year’s concert is the
venue. Usually the group performs at
St. Mark’s United Methodist Church,
and the church has just relocated to
8550 Pioneers Blvd.
“It’s a brand-new sanctuary, and
they’ve really increased the audience
capacity. And acoustically, it’s sup
posed to be tnuch better, so we’re
really excited about it,” Keagy said.
“Any time you get to perform in a
modem facility like that, it’s always a

long, and that fans should expect a
“I think people can anticipate
hearing some of their favorite
Christmas carols but with a new
fresh approach,” Keagy said.
“They’ll also get a chance to hear
some that aren’t as traditional.”
The concert starts at 7:30 p.m. on
Dec. 13 and costs $5 for students, $7
for senior citizens and $ 10 for adults.
The group will perform the same
show in Omaha on Dec. 11 at
Dundee Presbyterian Church, 5312
