About this project
The Eastern Iowa Brass Band (EIBB) has been making the world better through music for the last 29 years. All of our musicians are volunteers - no one gets paid! The money we raise goes to our operating expenses such as ordering sheet music, hiring clinicians, touring, attending competitions and running our Young Artist Competition. We want to make a CD to share with our audiences as we travel throughout Iowa, the Midwest and other destinations across America. We need your help to fund this project.
The EIBB performs all genres of music; classical, pop, orchestral transitions, original compositions, show tunes, jazz, marches, and we do it well, consistently. But the thing that EVERYONE says we do best (and we have to agree) is playing slow, emotional music. Like hymns and other spiritual pieces. So we decided to highlight our biggest strength and to produce a CD that focused on spiritual music.
The EIBB is a 501(c)3 charitable organization and producing a CD takes a lot of planning, time, and money. This is why we need your support to make our Reverence CD project a reality. With your help, we can afford to record, edit, master and produce this CD while preserving the legacy of Iowa’s only British-style brass band. This recording will contain some of the most beautiful sacred music and hymns available to brass bands.
