Performance at ACB Convention ...

We received a standing ovation at the ACB Convention at Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall in Pittsburgh, PA.


It was a honor and a pleasure to play to an audience of fellow musicians from all parts of the United States.

On the evening of March 31, 2016, we performed our concert at the magnificent Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall in Pittsburgh, PA at the annual Association of Concert Bands (ACB) Convention.  Six community bands were chosen to give an hour's concert to an audience of musicians who came from all over the United States.  The 4-day convention is held each spring and is sponsored by a local community band at their location.  This year's convention was sponsored by East Winds Symphonic Band and was held in Oakland area of PIttsburgh.


ACB is the "International Voice of Community Bands" committed to providing benefits and support to local bands and preserving concert band music.  More information about ACB is available on their website, acbands.org.


We auditioned and were honored to be selected.  It was a highlight in our busy schedule and not one we will soon forget.  Our program paid tribute to Pittsburgh and the surrounding area.
