“Copper Street Brass was fantastic tonight! And the '70s tunes brought back so many great memories. What a performance!”
Greetings and happy fall from Copper Street Brass! If you’ve been following us on social media or email you certainly know by now what a busy fall we’ve had. We just arrived back home in the Twin Cities last Saturday for our final concert on our six-week fall tour! It’s safe to say we’re all enjoying sleeping in our own beds again!
As we settle back in to life at home, we’ve been reflecting on what it means to take our music on the road. On tour we visited 23 communities, most of which had never had a visit from us before. We performed for around 6,000 folks in eight states and stopped in a couple of schools along the way to perform and visit with students.
Those are huge numbers for CSB, but here’s what we think matters: that emotion that you feel when CSB performs a song that has a special meaning to you, the smile on your face when you connect with friends at a concert, or knowing that young people get an opportunity to work directly with CSB musicians…6,000 people had those experiences for the first time this fall.
Give To The Max gives YOU the power to give more people these experiences through our music. For 2½ weeks, from November 1–17, YOU can make a financial contribution to CSB and help us further our mission of providing world-class outreach, education, and concert programming across the country.
This fall we’re asking for your support to help sustain our local programs in concert halls, classrooms, and senior living communities - and you can support our upcoming four-week nationwide tour this spring. We’re seeking to raise $1 for EVERY MILE we’ll travel in our trusty 15-passenger van this season: $15,000.
15,000 miles is a long way to drive in a season – more than halfway around the earth in fact! – but it is WORTH EVERY MILE to share our music and expand our mission.
Thank you for your support of Copper Street Brass, and we hope we can count on you to help propel CSB into a bright future this season and beyond!
