River City Brass Band History

The River City Brass Band (RCB) was founded in 1981 in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania under the direction of Robert Bernat. They took the stage at Carnegie Music Hall in determination to bring about the revival of the grass-roots tradition of American brass band.

The mission of RCB’s 28 member band was to entertain, educate and engage citizens locally, nationally and internationally in the American musical culture. Their local annual tradition was to present 51 regional concerts over seven months to citizens at seven regional venues, and to maintain an acclaimed youth band and Saturday Music Program. .  Nationally, RCB has routinely conducted concerts at venues including Pennsylvania’s Musikfest, New York’s Chautauqua Institution, Michigan’s Interlochen Center for the Arts, Indiana’s Conner Prairie, and North Carolina’s Thalian Hall, and has appeared on The Today Show and NPR’s Performance Today.  Internationally, RCB tours every several years, most recently in Italy last summer.
