About The Band

The 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 has been written specifically for the ensemble.  The members of the band have strong local ties, having attended the music schools of Clarion University, Duquesne University, Indiana University of Pennsylvania, Penn State University, and Slippery Rock University. These musicians are school administrators, music educators, music advocates, music merchants, studio teachers, freelance performers, and business owners with a common goal: To bring high-quality live music to Central Pennsylvania.

The band has performing for events and venues throughout the Central Pennsylvania region, including: the Mishler Theatre (Altoona), the Grand Halle (Johnstown), the Johnstown Concert Series at First Presbyterian Church (Johnstown), The State Theatre (State College), the Penns Woods Music Festival (State College), the Blair County Arts Festival (Penn State – Altoona), the State College Arts Festival (State College), First Night Celebration (State College), Fall Foliage Festival (Bedford), and the Hollidaysburg and Tyrone “Summer Concerts In The Park” series.
