Altoona Brass Collective Presents "Echoes of Brass" at The Grand Halle

Returning to the Halle after their successful debut performance in 2019, the Altoona Brass Collective is a dynamic group of educators, music advocates, music merchants, studio teachers, freelance performers and business owners. ABC takes pride in bringing together members from various backgrounds, with a significant portion of the ensemble consisting of educators from local school districts including Altoona Area, Hollidaysburg, Chestnut Ridge, Huntingdon, DuBois, Bellwood-Antis and Everett.

The ensemble, led by Scott Pappal, a talented horn player and one of the founding members, will be performing a carefully curated program that promises to delight audiences with its blend of classical, contemporary, and popular selections.

The anticipated program includes thrilling antiphonal pieces by Gabrieli, such as "Canzona Septimi Toni No. 2" and "Sonata Octavi Toni," showcasing the ensemble's prowess in delivering dynamic and resonant performances. Additionally, classic band literature arranged for brass, including the "Emperata Overture" and "English Folk Song Suite," will be featured. The program also includes a rendition of the popular hymn "On Eagle's Wings" and special arrangements of well-known hits by Scott Pappal, adding a contemporary twist to the concert.
