What is BRASS? We are Beaches Residents Actively Supporting the Symphony. BRASS is an all-volunteer group that supports the Jacksonville Symphony through financial contributions and by promoting concert attendance. BRASS also fosters appreciation of fine music locally by bringing concerts to the beaches, providing music education through a partnership with OLLI (Osher Lifelong Learning Institute) UNF, and encouraging and mentoring young musicians with the BRASS Ring Student Music Competition. BRASS includes people of all ages and backgrounds who live or work at the Beaches.
Our mission is to support the Jacksonville Symphony by fostering orchestral music appreciation, promoting concert attendance, providing financial support and facilitating music education.
