Andersson Honors The Illinois Brass Band on their 25th Anniversary

Representative Steve Andersson passed a resolution out of committee yesterday honoring the 25th anniversary of The Illinois Brass Band. House Resolution 824 was presented to the Elementary and Secondary Education Committee in the House, where Andersson described the accomplishments of the Band, and their 25 years spent bringing beautiful music to the Chicagoland area.

Since it was founded in 1991, The Illinois Brass Band has presented dozens of concerts indoors and out and showcased exceptional artists including Roger Webster, Michael Mulcahy, and Brett Baker. The Illinois Brass Band has produced six recordings to date. Most notably, the band is a six time national champion of the North American Brass Band Association.

Representative Andersson sought out this resolution to recognize the Illinois Brass Band, a 30 member British style brass band, whose hard work and dedication to music has made a profound impact in our state. The Resolution declares Saturday, June 11, 2016, as Illinois Brass Band Day.

Representative Andersson congratulates The Illinois Brass Band on their success, and their 25th Anniversary. More of Representative Andersson’s remarks on this resolution can be seen in the video below.
