David P. Heintzelman
Trumpet / Treasurer

Dave Heintzelman began playing the trumpet in 5th grade in the Hazleton, Pa. school system.  He switched to baritone horn in 12th grade.  While in Hazleton, he also played with the Liberty Band, band of some historical significance — the band played at the end of the Civil War when Lee surrendered to Grant.  Dave played trumpet in the Lehigh University band and then switched again to baritone for his last two collegiate years.

Dave is one of the original members of the Brass Society.  He also plays in the Newark Community Band.

Dave's most memorable musical experience was when the Lehigh University band received standing ovation from over 30 thousand people while performing at the Harvard bowl.
