Mission Statement The principle mission of theBrunswick Bands is to support the performance of instrumental music in our county.
The most visible contributions are the various performances by the Concert and Big Bands, but members can be found performing in small ensembles, in the pit for musicals with the Brunswick Little Theater as well as in other area musical groups.
The Music Student Assistance Program is sponsored and funded by the Bands. This program loans musical instruments to students throughout the county. These instruments have been donated to the band, and volunteers evaluate their status. If appropriate, the instruments are repaired at band expense. Please see our MSAP page for detailed information. Several band members assist with the music programs at public middle and high schools in the county. This helps the students realize that music can be a life-long activity and encourages the students to participate with the bands even while they are students.
The band has created a $1,000 annual scholarship in memory of Frank Mahoney, a longtime member, Past President and one of the original founders of the Brunswick Big Band. The scholarship is awarded to a graduating Brunswick County wind or percussion musician who has been accepted to an accredited college, university or technical school and who has participated in their high school band or external community band program for a minimum of three years.
