Altoona Brass Collective
The Altoona Brass Collective, directed by Doug Stephens, was formed in 2017 by musicians in the central Pennsylvania area sharing a love of brass instruments, quality music, and live performance. All of ABC’s repertoire has been written specifically for the ensemble. Members of the group have received their training at the music schools of Clarion, Duquesne, Penn State, Slippery Rock, and Indiana University of Pennsylvania. These professionals serve as educators in the school districts of Altoona, Bedford, Bellwood, Bishop-Guilfoyle, Dubois, Hollidaysburg, Portage, and Holy Trinity. These performers share a common goal: To bring high quality live music to central Pennsylvania.
