Brass on Tap (BOT) is our most important fundraising event each season, last year generating about half of our individual giving revenue during that one event. Due to the current crisis, we have shifted our Brass on Tap fundraising gala event to Brass on Tap Online, April 11-18. We are so disappointed that we won’t be host the event in person, but our number one concern is the health and safety of our community.
The current COVID-19 crisis has created an unsettling time for all of us, especially for arts and community organizations like ours. We’ve been forced to cancel or postpone nearly all of our outreach visits to schools and assisted living facilities - meaning our income for this spring has mostly vanished. However even in these uncharted waters, Copper Street Brass is continuing our critical work in any and all ways that we are able.
As our staff and artists are at work behind the scenes to adapt our current programming to a now online audience, we urgently need your support.
Our goal is to raise $17,000 this spring, and our board has pledged an additional $3,500 towards our programming if we reach that goal! If you have room in your charitable budget we’d be so grateful for your donation or pledge in any amount. Thanks to many of our amazing fans and supporters we’re already halfway there, and we need YOU to get us to the finish line!!
Your support provides access for kids and seniors to digital educational and enrichment programming as we all respond to the crisis in our community. Once the fog of the virus lifts your support enables us to immediately hop back in our van to pay visits to communities across the state, especially those located far from our cultural center in the Twin Cities. For most of the people we serve, CSB is the only professional arts experience they have all year, which is why it is so critical for us to be ready to perform and teach again as soon as we are all safe.
Making a pledge is an easy way to spread your gift out in multiple parts throughout the year. You'll choose any amount and then choose how often you'd like that amount to be debited from your credit or debit card (we can't withdraw automatically from your bank account at this time). You can choose monthly or quartly contributions, and you can set it up securely on our pledge page!
The mission of the CSB is to represent the Evolution of the Brass Quintet. Through inventive concerts, engaging educational programs, and original musical arrangements, we bring a fresh perspective to instrumental music. To express our artistic voice, we use a dazzling fusion of brass, keyboard, guitar, percussion, and electronic instruments to appeal to a universal audience and go beyond ordinary.Download our Bio
