Welcomes You

Preserving the Great American Concert Band Tradition


Message from the President

Hello Pioneer Band Fans,

Spring has finally arrived in the Lehigh Valley and we are very excited about the upcoming 2019 concert season.  Director Bob Billig and our Assistant Director Brian Smith along with the rest of our band members have been working very hard at our rehearsals over the past winter.  I would like to personally invite you to all of our concerts and ask that you bring along a few friends.  There will be very diverse and entertaining programs all season long.

Our concert schedule and other information about the band can be found here on our website.  You can can also check us our on Facebook by searching for :  Pioneer Band of Allentown.  We continue to "Go Green" whenever possible so if you have an email address , please send it to so we can update our database.  We would also prefer to send our newsletters and concert information electronically through email if possible.  Postage and printing costs continue to go up along with everything else.  On that note, if you are able to support the band with our mission of "Preserving the Great American Concert Band Tradition" please contact us to see how you can help.

As we begin our 130th season, the Band and I look forward to performing for you.  As always, we than you for our continued support.

Best Regards,


Mark N. Held, Band President
