This event is over.

In November 1981, something special happened...

… a musical renaissance took place in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Under the baton of conductor Robert Bernat, the River City Brass (RCB) took to the Carnegie Music Hall stage for its inaugural performance. It was an evening of musical excellence and determination - determination to bring about the revival of the grassroots tradition of the American brass band.

Now under the skillful baton of Dr. James Gourlay, the RCB continues its tradition of excellence as they bring to the Fisher stage a great selection of their most popular repertoires. Enjoy an evening brimming with a bit of Broadway, the hits of Hollywood, and some American brass band favorites.

Students of the IUP brass studios will share the stage with the talented musicians of RCB as they perform on select pieces.
