The Christmas concerts are Nebraska Brasss most popular events each year. Ward said that she made a special request for the December date and had to get on a waiting list for the specific date.

I was really excited when I was notified about their (Nebraska Brass) availability for December 8, Ward said. It is really going to be great to be able to pair their performance with the Chambers Christmas around the Square as well as the performance of the live crche at the Presbyterian church.
