Dear BBBC family,

We miss you! 

The last time we were with you was Saturday, December 7, 2019 and we wanted to let you know that we are thinking of that concert and the excitement and joy that happens when we are all together.

As a way of showing how much we enjoy sharing those sentiments with you, we recently put together a gathering of BBBC musicians, both past and present, to reminisce about all of the love and camaraderie that occurs whenever we are together.  This event, put together by our resident conductor and his wonderful wife, Michael and Cherry Garasi, celebrates the music, memories, and magic that makes the Brass Band of Battle Creek so unique, and so loved by all of us.  Watch for a few special guests who dropped in to share their thoughts (including superstar jazz trumpeter, Doc Severinsen).  Please click on the link below to see the gathering event.

In the meantime, thank you for your support!  The Brass Band of Battle Creek, like all other arts organizations, is feeling the financial impact of missed performances.  We deeply appreciate your donations that allow us to continue creating incredible music experiences and youth education opportunities now and beyond our current situation.  We could not do this without you! 
We are paying close attention to the COVID-19 situation, with our number one priority being the safety of our musicians and all of our amazing BBBC family.  We are working diligently to bring you a Holiday Concert that adheres to the guidelines of the CDC and federal, state, and local governments.  We will keep you updated as we move forward.

Please visit our website,, to watch for concert updates or to click on the Donate button.  We cannot thank you enough!

We look forward to sharing the BBBC magic with you again soon!
