Support BBWR

All band personnel voluntarily participate; however, funding is needed for operating costs such as rehearsal space, transportation, guest musician fees, music, and more. There are many different ways in which you can support our bandRead on to see how you can help.

25th Anniversary music commissioning

2022 will mark the 25th anniversary for the Brass Band of the Western Reserve.  To celebrate this quarter century benchmark, the BBWR will be commissioning a new composition by an internationally known arranger (It’s a secret so we can’t tell you who just yet!) 

Normally, ticket sales from our concert series, performance fees, and patron donations would assist us in financing this new composition, but the Covid-19 pandemic has substantially impacted the band’s ability to do this without your help!  

Now is your chance to be a part of the 25th anniversary of BBWR by making a financial contribution. 100% of your donation will be used to fund the commissioning of this new piece of music specifically celebrating the 25th anniversary of Brass Band of the Western Reserve. You can contribute as little or as much as you like by donating at the following link.
