Eastern Edge is regularly coached by Joe Burgstaller, former trumpet player of the Canadian Brass and Co-leader of the Burgstaller-Martignon 4. In addition to Mr. Burgstaller, Eastern Edge has also been under the instruction of Larry Williams, member of the Lyric Brass Quintet, and has performed in many masterclasses for those such as Phil Snedecor and the Army Brass Quintet.
The group is very involved with the Baltimore and neighboring communities, participating in outreach programs like mentoring students from City Neighbors High School, performing at My Sisters Place, retirement homes, and in benefit concerts for Tuned-In, an organization that raises money to buy instruments for the inner city kids of Baltimore.
