Next Steel City Ambassadors Events

Greetings all,
The next horn line rehearsal will be held on Saturday, April 24th, from 1-4 at Winchester Thurston School North Campus - 4225 Middle Rd, Allison Park PA 15101. If the drum line can make it, that would be great!  We are planning on doing the DuBois show/parade on June 12th.

We have some really great new music by some of our favorite arrangers and we've made some good progress.  There is some challenging music and some really fun music, in addition to some of our old standbys.

We've got a great new brass instructor, Elliott Ratliff, who is a jazz trombonist and musical educator. 

We will be working on Devil with the Blue Dress, Just a Gigolo, Polka, Emblem, America (Cooley version).  Continue working on Amen!

We need more people.  We need horns. Let's make Steel great again!  We have an outstanding color guard who have been working very hard, and am outstanding drum line.  Now let's get the horns to back them up.
Some of the songs we're playing are Amen by For King & Country and America (not our old The Beautiful)...

Come to rehearsal and bring a friend!

Bill & LuAnn Ringler

These Performances are for Brass Drum Line and Guard
Drum Line rehearsals are in Ohio and at WT North, Guard at WT North on Tuesday evenings.
Brass is a little behind schedule, every 2 weeks on Saturdays for Now.
We need to fill the Brass Section to make this work.

The plan for this 2021 is Alumni and A Corps Perform Together this summer.
We need way more young people to fill an A Corps.
Parades are where the money is.
We will still be using the Trailer for the guys that can't march anymore,
We will be doing trailer and marching units together for parades.

The Guard will do SDCA , A Corps and Indoor Winter Guard,(TOB, TRWEA), Parades and Concerts.
Drum Line will do SDCA and Indoor (TOB, TRWEA), Parades and Concerts.
Guard and Percussion have a good start, but Covid closed the winter season competition.

We need more people to fill this out in all sections.
We have a good start, just have to keep things growing.
The management is dedicated to make this happen.
It all cant happen this summer, but by next winter we hope to have a competition Guard and Percussion line happening.
By Next Spring hopefully, we will have enough Young Brass to put it all together for an A Corps.

That's the long range plan, need more people to make it work.
