Gold Country Brass, a local instrumental group, has appeared at a number of local fund raisers in the area including Victorian Christmas.

The group appears regularly with the Nevada County Concert Band.

Two trumpet players in the group, John Smiley and Bruce Heseltine, are also Interfaith Food Ministry volunteers.

On April 12, the Gold Country Brass will present a concert for the benefit of the Interfaith Food Ministry.

Other instrumentalists include Richard Morrissey on Horn, David Bear on trombone and Gary Shannon on tuba.

The one-hour concert, which starts at 2 p.m, will present different styles of music and will be held at Grace Bible Church in Cedar Ridge on Highway 174.

Admission to the concert is free but donations of cash or non-perishable food items will be gratefully appreciated.

According to its website, Interfaith Food Ministry has been providing supplemental food as a nonprofit organization in Western Nevada County since 1987.

“Over those 28-years, 500,000 seniors, families with children, and single adults have walked through our doors,” it stated on its website.
