Joined by Lithuanian euphonium player Algirdas Matonis, the River City Brass sonically transports the audience to several fantastical worlds. Wizards, hobbits, orcs, and Voldemorts clash in battle as the band blasts the epic scores of The Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter films. It’s more than just imaginary creatures, however. A real-life army from centuries ago marches on in Respighi’s Pines of Rome, a symphonic poem that led to some of America’s most beloved brass marches.
River City Brass
Founded in hopes of bringing about a revival of the American brass band, River City Brass aims to share the uniquely joyous art form with audiences across Pennsylvania. And for the past 30-odd years, the group has done just that. River City Brass’s 28-piece ensemble—some of whom have been members since the early ’80s—play more than 50 concerts annually. Their programs span continents and centuries, with every performance bringing a new showcase of styles. Modern music, classical pieces, big-band jazz, and show tunes have all passed through RCB’s bright cornets, chortling tubas, and crisp percussion.
