Three Rivers Community Band Festival

UpDate Mar 13, 2020

Subject: Three Rivers Community Band Festival is Cancelled!

Dear Festival Band Player,

It is with sincere regret that the East Winds Symphonic Band board  of directors and the Three Rivers Community Band Festival steering  committee are canceling the band festival scheduled for Saturday, March  28.

As you know, health officials are recommending against large gatherings to deter the further spread of the Coronavirus.

The Festival organizers have been particularly concerned that many  of our community band players fall into a higher risk age group.

And we have just learned that the Upper St. Clair School District has temporarily canceled events by outside groups.

Festival Band Committee


The Three River Community Band Festival will be held at the Upper St. Clair High School located at 1825 McLaughlin Run Road, Upper St. Clair, PA 15241.  Once again, we are organizing a Festival Band comprised  of players from community bands and ensembles throughout the western PA  area.  Dr. James Gourlay, Artistic and General Director of the River  City Brass, returns at this year’s guest conductor.  Dr. Gourlay is celebrating his 10th season as the Artistic and  General Director of the River City Brass. Read more about Dr. Gourlay’s background and  general information about the TRCBF Festival Band at

After a three hour morning rehearsal,  the Festival Band opens the TRCBF at 2:00 pm.  Three other community  bands follow with 30 minute performances.  Admission is free and open to  the public.  A reception for all performers and guests follows the  conclusion of the festival in the late afternoon.  Visit the festival  band page for further details at
