MEMORIAL DAY CONCERT EVENT

HEIDELBERG BRASS BAND

The Heidelberg Brass Band will be presenting a rather unique concert at the Mt. Olivet Campmeeting in Dillsburg on Sunday, May 29th, beginning at 7:00 p.m. 

Formed in 1954, the Heidelberg Brass Band has been entertaining people young and old with their German style of music for more than 60 years!  The band was born when a musician from Heidelberg Township (Berks County) recruited local musicians to play for Sunday School picnics, ice cream socials, parades and other local events.

Two of the original members of the band, brothers Jim and Glenn Beard, are still playing with the band.  Glenn has been the band’s drummer for the entire 62 years the band has been together!  Glenn’s son, Glenn, Jr., a Lutheran pastor, became the manager of the band nearly 15 years ago.  One of his dreams, having been around the band for all of his life, has been to have the band play for worship!  As part of a surprise celebration of Pastor Beard’s 25 ordination anniversary, Lisa, his wife, arranged to have the band present to lead worship on the Sunday closest to the date of Pastor Beard’s ordination.  And so, in May of 2015 the “Polka Mass with the Heidelberg Brass Band” was born and has been making the rounds in churches in the Lancaster, Lebanon and Berks County area ever since!

On May 29th, the band will share the “Music of the Polka Mass” with the crowd gathered at Mt. Olivet and will mix in some patriotic music as well.  Come out and join in the fun as we sing the hymns of the Polka Mass and give glory to God to a unique and spirited way!  We will also honor our veterans as we pay tribute to our country that Memorial Day weekend.
