Concert Programs

Movies & TV

Bob grew up in front of the TV, so it's only natural that our programs and music reflect all of that early training:
Higlights include:

  • Music from Rocky - Why Rocky? YO - WHY NOT! - Actually Bob's mom was in the movie that's why
  • John Williams Medley
  • The Lone Ranger in an art Gallery


The Beatles? The Lone Ranger gallops through an art gallery? A contemporary piece affectionately renamed "Bad Sushi"?. It's all there & there's almost always some sort of story to tell. Our variety program includes favorites from the classical, contemporary and jazz repertoire mixed together in new and creative ways.


Forget about chestnuts roasting on an open fire; It's time to hire Hickory Brass to burn up your concert stage with holiday music. Did you ever imagine 'Twas the Night Before Christmas set to music? Maybe you have and maybe you haven't, but we guarantee you that our version will warm the cockles of your hearts.

Patriotic Themes

Hickory Brass is proud to honor those who serve our country through community concerts and performances of Taps through Bugles Across America. Our Patriotic concert program includes marches, fanfares, and popular favorites.

Hickory Brass has successfully collaborated with many groups looking to enhance their concert experience with brass.


  • The Hickory Brass was so wonderful, they were definitely the favorite event of the night. Not only was the musicianship of the group fantastic, but you created an interactive and fun program for our residents. We loved it so much we already want to book you for next year! - Kira H. - Community Life Director - Broomall Rehab
  • One of the members of the church came up to me afterward and told me how much they loved your performance. Can't wait to have you back for our Christmas concert and hopefully sometime even before then. - Dominic S. - Music Director - St. Georges Church
  • Thanks so much for your participation at our event yesterday! We received so many compliments from the patrons and visitors about having you there it really made a difference! You were Great" - Brad Z. - Paoli Business & Professional Association
  • "When our original act had to cancel their appearance at the last minute, Hickory Brass stepped in and on three weeks notice, provided a brass quintet to perform for our annual concert series. We were delighted with the performance and the musicians. Even with short notice, Bob was also able to provide a great deal of support in the way of promotional materials. Further, Bob went out of his way during the performance to graciously acknowledge and thank to our event sponsors. We look forward to working with Hickory Brass again in the future." - Susan Mislick - Concert Coordinator
  • "In my role as director for both the Brandywine Singers and Paoli Presbyterian Church, I've hired Hickory Brass to perform on many occasions. Their performances are consistently outstanding!" - Jonathan Kreamer, Music Director
  • "Thanks so much for your beautiful playing and sensitive musicianship. I would heartily recommend your group to anyone asking me. We are very satisfied collaborators" - Peter Hilliard - Music Director
