The Festival Band conductor for 2023 will be James Gourlay, who returns by popular demand after conducting our Festival Band in 2012! He is now celebrating his 10th season as Artistic and General Director of the River City Brass.

We keep Dr. Stephen Gage’s family in our thoughts and reflect upon the music-filled memories we all shared with him.
The Three Rivers Community Band Festival was begun in order to highlight the community bands in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area. The first festival, sponsored by the East Winds Symphonic Band, was presented on April 4, 2004 at the Upper St. Clair Theater, and was a phenomenal success. The festival has since been an annual tradition each spring.
