Youngstown Area Community Concert Band

Eleven of our band members participated in the 13th annual Three Rivers Community Band Festival on April 23, 2016, held at the Upper St Clair Theater in Pittsburgh, PA.  Ten of the eleven played in the festival band under the direction of Dr. Stephen Gage, Professor of Conducting and Director of Bands & Orchestra at Youngstown State University‚Äôs Dana School of Music.

The festival band was comprised of 94 musicians from 55 community ensembles in Pennsylvania and Ohio.  This one-day event began with a morning rehearsal, lunch by the host band, then concerts open to the public in the afternoon.  The Festival Band opened the concerts with:

The Star Spangled Banner.............................arr. by Jack Stamp

Let Freedom Ring......................................................Ryan Nowin

Ave Maria.................................Franz Biebl/arr. Robert Cameron

Suite No. 1 in Bb......................................................Gustav Holst

The Festival Band was followed by performances from guest bands:  Mon Valley Community Band, East Winds Symphonic Band, and Community Band South. 

The Festival Finale featured all musicians combining for Sousa's "Stars and Stripes Forever" from the stage and around the auditorium, treating the audience to "Live Surround Sound"!

This was a wonderful opportunity to promote community bands, perform for the audience, broaden our playing experience, and make new friends who share our love of playing music!  Many thanks to our host, East Winds Symphonic Band, for their commitment and work to make all of this happen.
