Musicians from Pittsburgh’s own River City Brass are traveling to Dhaka, Bangladesh next month. RCB’s Music Director/Conductor James Gourlay will travel with seven RCB musicians to Dhaka, Bangladesh to play a number of concerts –bringing a little bit of the Steel City to the other side of the world!


The trip, which goes from February 8-16, will include concerts at a gala for the American International School Dhaka, The U.S. and Brazilian embassies, and at various local schools. James will be documenting the trip via his Facebook page, and live-streaming some of the events. The programs will feature RCB favorites like “Eye of the Tiger,” “Anvil Chorus,” and “Jai Ho.”
