Who we are
We are a non-profit community volunteer concert band dedicated to providing life-long education and enjoyment through instrumental music. We serve the Steel Valley and surrounding Pittsburgh Communities.
We rehearse every Monday evening from 6-8:30pm at Anne Ashley Memorial United Methodist Church in Munhall, PA. We are hoping to build every section in the band, especially:
- low brass
- bass clarinet
We’d love for you to join us! It doesn’t matter if you haven’t played your instrument in two days or twenty years. All are welcome and encouraged to play!
We prefer that you bring your own instrument, but we can connect you with a business that offers affordable rentals if not.
Importantly, we acknowledge that family and work are priorities. We accommodate late arrivals, leaving early, or missing rehearsal from time to time. However, attending practices regularly helps you feel more comfortable with the music but also allows you to experience the amazing community we have to offer!

President & Music Director
As the conductor and founder of the Munhall Community Band I feel like I’m living the American Dream. I am blessed to have these wonderful musicians and friends in my life.
Work forced music to take a back seat in my life for over 20 years. When I was invited to join MCB, I was skeptical that I could even still play. What I found was an unbelievably welcoming group of like-minded musicians who value the process of learning and growing together, and some of the best friends that I have ever made as an adult.
MCB is my second family. It’s welcoming, fun, and my best method of self-care.
After a 20 year hiatus from music performance, I was seriously missing playing, but was fearful of whether I would find a group of welcoming musicians that would understand that I was easing my way back into playing again. Luckily, I saw a post on social media welcoming musicians to Munhall Community Band. In addition to providing much needed self care, I met many new people that share a love of music.
