Ohio brass and percussion student group to perform at 26th annual Brass Band Festival.

The Gettysburg Brass Band Festival is pleased to welcome the All-Star Brass and Percussion of Columbus, Ohio.  Dr. Eric Aho, Director of Bands and Orchestra at Independence High School, founded the group in 1986. Students involved in the band must receive a nomination and successfully complete an audition process.  Young musicians from over 40 schools and eight Central Ohio counties currently participate in the organization. While some All-Star students pursue musical careers, most continue with music as an avocation.  In 2009, 2014, and 2019, the ensemble fulfilled the opportunity of a lifetime by participating in the New York Band & Orchestra Festival with performances in Central Park and Carnegie Hall.  The All-Star Brass and Percussion is the first and most awarded youth honors brass band organization in North America.

The ASBB will perform at the Heritage Center on Friday, June 9 at 8:00 pm, Hollabaugh Bros. Family Farm on Saturday, June 10 at 11:00 am, the Gettysburg Brass Band Festival on Sunday, June 11 at noon, and the Gettysburg Visitors Center on Monday, June 12 at 10:00 am.

All Star Brass and Percussion

Everyone is welcome to enjoy two days of outstanding brass music on Saturday, June 10 from noon-7:00 pm and Sunday, June 11 from noon-5:00 pm at the United Lutheran Seminary Pavilion.  All performances are free and open to the public.  A complete schedule is available at www.gettysburgbrassbandfestival.com.
