The Freedom Brass Band will next perform at the Hudson Music on the Green series, at 7 p.m. Sunday night. This ensemble comprises professional and amateur musicians from across Northeast Ohio who will be playing a combination of patriotic music, marches, show tunes and some classics.

The band will be directed by Tucker R. Jolly, professor emeritus of music at The University of Akron. Jolly is also well known locally as the creator and director of Akron’s Tuba Christmas and Tuba Summer.

For almost 100 years, American brass bands provided the only music available to American towns and brought classics, marches and popular songs to the American frontier. Join on the Green July 15 for the mellow sounds of an American brass band.
