Help us Support University Brass Bands

UniBrass exists to support university brass musicians at the time many are likely to stop playing, ensuring a strong future for the brass band movement. Since our inception we have been a driving force in the creation of 10 new university bands, have led to the composing of over 20 new works for brass band, and educated a new generation of conductors.

Unfortunately, none of this work is cheap. UniBrass faces costs of up to £20,000 a year, and it is only through the generosity of the public that we can ensure our work can continue. 


There are many ways in which you can support the work of the UniBrass Foundation.
