The Brass Band

Millerstown PA

The Brass Band was formed in the spring of 2001 and their first appearance was in June of that year at Little Buffalo State Park.  The group is currently comprised of both career and non-career musicians who perform with the Greenwood Community Band and reside in the Central PA area. 

The group was organized to provide an outlet for the Band's brass players to perform music arranged specifically for brass band, which includes, marches, hymn tunes, classical, Dixieland, blues, patriotic, novelty and seasonal music.  The ensemble is conducted by Lois Swartz Yingling who is a native of Millerstown and now resides in Freeburg.  She has been a music educator for the past 35 years.
