UNL Faculty Presents Leonard Bernstein's Music For Brass

Leonard Bernstein completed his suite of brass pieces on April 8, 1959. They were written for members of the New York Philharmonic and received their premier at Carnegie Hall. The pieces were commissioned by the Juilliard Musical Foundation. This set of pieces, to be performed by members of the Glenn Korff School of Music faculty, is rarely performed as a set and are all influenced by Bernstein's love of jazz.
