Dear Valued Pitt Band Alums,

We are very pleased to announce the hiring of Dr. Brad Townsend as the Band Director at the University of Pittsburgh. Brad is a proven professional with more than two decades of collegiate experience. Most recently, he spent the past decade at Oregon State University as the Director of Athletic Bands. Brad grew up in Western Pennsylvania and is excited to return home to be near family and friends. We had tremendous candidates for this position and that made this selection extra special. We are fortunate to attract such a well-respected individual for this important responsibility. Jack Anderson set such a high bar while directing the Pitt Band and Brad is enthusiastically committed to maintaining that high standard as we move into the future.

Please join us in welcoming Brad to the Pitt family.

Steve Pederson
