The Piedmont Brass Group

The Piedmont Brass Group is actually three distinctly different bands. There is the Piedmont Brass Quintet, The Stuebenville Tootlers (our German Band) and the N'Orleans Steamboat Band (our Dixieland Jazz Band).

We'll start with the Piedmont Brass Quintet, since this is the anchor group. On the following pages we'll describe the other two groups and how to book them. You will also find a music page containing mp3's of some of the Piedmont Brass selections. We have also included a page on TubaChristmas in Greenville, SC, since the Tuba player in all these groups, namely your humble author, had been (and still is) very involved in this program.

This site also hosts a first hand account of action in and around the town of Schuylkill Haven, PA during the "disturbance at Gettysburg" during the War between the States. Click on the link to "Reminiscences of Schuykill Haven" on the left to read this account.

We're glad you stopped by the Piedmont Brass page. If you have any questions about the groups, want to book one of the groups or just want to talk about brass music, drop us an email! Click the link below to become a "fan" of The Piedmont Brass!

Finally, a truly unique brass quintet has arrived.

The Piedmont Brass Quintet, started by former members of the Foothills Brass and Appalachian Brass Quintets, is a group not only dedicated to playing brass music, but to evolving the art of brass playing.

Organized in 1993, the Piedmont Brass Quintet is equally at home in the concert hall, church, classroom or outdoor festival. Their style ranges from the master counterpoint of Johann Sebastian Bach to the subtle nuances of Jan Bach (no relation, so far as we know). From Tomaso Albinoni to John Williams.

To enforce their dedication to evolving the art of brass, the Quintet performs a number of original transcriptions, penned by group members and other area composers/arrangers.

Current members are: James Kilgus and John Hoppe, Trumpets; Christina Cornell, French Horn; Earl Sachais, Trombone; Richard Neiman, Tuba.

Available dates furnished by contacting the Piedmont Brass, or calling 864-834-3798. Group price starting at $1250.00.
