Here are two of the highlights of the concert program that Newberry’s Victorian Cornet Band is performing at the 2010 Vintage Band Festival in Northfield, Minnesota. Verdi’s “Terzetto and Finale from Attila” arranged by J. B. Claus and a terrific piccolo solo featuring Christine Beard, “The Wren Polka” by Eugene Demare. Dr. Christine Beard is on the faculty of the University of Nebraska at Omaha and is an international authority on the 19th-century piccolo. It’s a thrill having her play with the Newberry Band!
