Welcome Glenn and Laura Greet! 
Last week Michelle Schrage introduced us to new members Glenn and Laura Greet. 
Hailing from North Yorkshire, England, Glenn was educated at the Colchester Institute's School of Music under the leadership of former London Symphony Orchestra trumpeter George Reynolds. As a British Policeman, he served in the Force's Brass Band in his spare time. Glenn has performed at Buckingham Palace, The Royal Albert Hall, The Barbican, Westminster Abbey, and has participated in 18 overseas tours over the years. Glenn is the owner and CEO of the Chippy's Group Companies, a new chain of British retail shops throughout the midwest. Glenn also serves as the Executive & Musical Director of the Nebraska British Brass Band, an emerging and leading musical ensemble in Nebraska. Glenn & his wife Laura established the group in 2017.

Laura Greet is currently a manager of design at Union Pacific Railroad. Laura works in the human resource department and designs training for Union Pacific employees. Laura holds an Educational Specialist degree in Instructional Technology and is currently working towards a doctoral degree in Educational Leadership from UNO. Laura is married to Glenn and they have 3 children: Matthew, Joshua, and Taylor. As a family they enjoy travel (especially cruising!) and brass banding. Glenn and Laura are the founders of the Nebraska Brass Band, a 40-piece British style brass band. 
Welcome to Glenn and Laura!
