With music director, Jim Kurschner, and featuring Patrick Sheridan on tuba.
We can’t believe it either – 30 years!
This concert will be a night to remember, as we have some trips down memory lane planned and a very special guest musician and conductor, Patrick Sheridan!

The Sheldon Theatre Brass Band was founded in 1989 as the resident performing ensemble at the newly-restored, turn-of-the-century, T. B. Sheldon Theatre in Red Wing, Minnesota. We use the instrumentation of the traditional British-style brass band and play a broad variety of musical styles including original pieces for brass and percussion, marches, orchestral transcriptions, and unique arrangements for brass.
