MVNU to Host The Dublin Silver Band in Concert
December 12, 2013
MOUNT VERNON, Ohio - Mount Vernon Nazarene University will present The Dublin Silver Band in concert on Thursday, December 12, at 7 p.m. The concert will take place in the R.R. Hodges Chapel/Fine Arts Building. The community is invited to attend this free event.
The Dublin Silver Band prides itself on presenting innovative programs of a high musical standard that engage the audience. This concert will feature all-time favorite Christmas brass arrangements plus an exclusive encore presentation of "The Power of One" which was performed at the 2013 U.S. Open Brass Band Competition.
The Dublin Silver Band was founded in 2008 as the Ohio Brass Band. In 2010, the band joined the Dublin Community Bands, changing its name to recognize its partnership with the Dublin Community. The band has quickly developed a national and international reputation, having performed at the Durham (UK) "Brass" festival (in joint concerts with both the Fishburn Band and Brighouse & Rastrick Band) and the Ohio Brass Arts Festival. Additionally, the band competes annually at the U.S. Open Brass Band Championships where the band has been awarded "Most Entertaining" band on four occasions, as well as caption awards for best percussion, best cornet (on two occasions), and best march. This past summer, the band competed and won the 2013 Ohio Brass Arts Festival Cup.
