June 24, 2018 Guest Artist: Altoona Brass Collective

 

Altoona Brass Collective was formed in 2017 by musicians in the Central Pennsylvania area sharing a love of brass instruments, quality music, and live performance. All of ABC's repertoire is written "in house" especially for the ensemble. Members of the group have strong local ties. Music schools represented include those of Clarion University, Duquesne University, Indiana University of Pennsylvania, Penn State University, and Slippery Rock University. These musicians are school administrators, music educators, freelance performers, studio teachers, instrument technicians, and businessmen with a common goal: to bring high-quality live music to the Central Pennsylvania Area!
