In its first decade, the Chicago Brass Band has won the North American
Brass Band Association Championship, competed in the inaugural World
Music Contest in The Netherlands, participated in the renowned Whit Friday
Marches in England, and dazzled a packed hall at the prestigious Midwest Clinic.

these first ten years with a special concert marking their 10th anniversary. The

an item performed with band alumni. In the concert's second half, the band
previewed the program it is preparing for its first-ever entry in the upcoming
US Open contest.
Following the concert, concert goers joined band members and alumni
