Registered Charity No
The UniBrass Foundation exists to support and nurture university brass bands, providing educational, musical and performance opportunities to existing university ensembles and to encourage the creation of new university bands. The foundation aims to provide a crucial link between youth banding and community banding movements, and ensure the future generation of brass musicians continue to play throughout their time at university.
The focal point of the Foundations activity is supporting the organisation of the annual UniBrass contest, in which universtity bands from across the UK come together to compete in two sections. In its decade of existence, the entirely student run contest has grown to include 21 bands and has been hosted by the universities of Lancaster, Warwick, York and Bangor. We move to Sheffield for 2021/22.
As well as the contest, the Foundation provides advice to university ensembles, supports carolling events, has hosted a student contuctors course, organised summer music events, and is looking forward to future artistic development activities.
As a charity, the UniBrass Foundation relies on danations to carry out its projects, and by supporting this lottery you are enabling us to continue our work and safeguard the future of brass bands.
Thank you for your help.
