Revisiting Our Past

During a recent concert at Brookdale of Mt. Lebanon, a resident showed us a picture of her father when he was a boyhood member of the Ringold Band. It was fun to see a fellow musician from long ago when this was a boys’ band.

New Members Always Welcome

We are always looking for musicians of all ages interested in joining our band.  If you have questions about us or would like to talk to someone about joining, please email us through the CONTACT US tab on this site.

Change in Rehearsal Site

For the 2018-19 season we will rehearse at the Covenant Community Church, located at 1630 Green Tree Road, Pittsburgh 15220- near the intersection with Forsythe Road. Park behind the church and enter the building through the door near the playground. Remember to bring your music stand. 7:30-9:00 pm

We’re Experimenting

In the winter of 2019 we will experiment with offering some Saturday afternoon concerts. If this time slot would fit your facility’s schedule better than Monday evenings, contact us via email using the CONTACT US tab or call 412-279-7395 to book a date.

You are invited to a free Friends & Family Concert by the Ringold Band on April 29, 2019 at 7:30.

Join the oldest continually-performing band in Western PA for a free concert at Covenant Community Presbyterian Church, located at 1630 Greentree Road, near the intersection with Forsythe Road. The concert will be approximately one hour long and will feature music for all generations.

If you would like to include dinner in your plans, the church is having a spaghetti dinner at 6:00 – $8 for adults and $3 ages 6-11. Come early and enjoy good food, good company and good music.

A Voice from Our Past – an email contact from a former member

“I was thinking of all the wonderful times I had marching with the band and just typed it into my computer. I was very pleased to see so many different sites pop up. I remember a lot of the members in the one pic I looked at.  Didn’t have the time to look over everything. But will sometime soon. I played the Clarinet, we had a few different directors as I recall. I have no problem with you posting my messages. Thank you for responding, I will stay alert and check the site to see what else I can find. I will let Al Kolesky know and Bill Burns ( not the news guy ) know as well. ”    Chuck DeVorak
