Allegheny Brass Band
The ABB is a British-style brass band. Unlike your typical high school or college band and most “community” bands, we have no woodwinds (saxophone, clarinet, bassoon, flute, oboe). And of course, we have "no strings attached." Founded in 1984, the ABB is made up of about 30 amateur players who despite their diverse backgrounds and walks of life – share a common love of music. Free admission.
