On Tuesday, March 21, Mr. Jefferson’s Bones will be the featured final concert of the 2023 Puertorrican BrassFest, an event that brings together brass players — trumpet, horn, trombone, tuba from across the island of Puerto Rico — for a day of recitals and performances. In addition to this featured performance, we are planning an additional concert to music students and the public.  To continue our support for music education in Puerto Rico, we are appearing at these events free of charge and bearing the costs of our travel and lodging ourselves (with partial assistance for two of our college professor members from their respective institutions.)

We are grateful for any donations you are willing to make to support this trip. To aid in ease of donation, we’ve setup three initial giving points at $25, $50 and $100. Please feel free to “adjust the quantity” in each donation to increase the amount. ($25 donations will increase by $25; $50 donations increase by $50, etc.)


If you are in or near the Blacksburg, Christiansburg, Roanoke area on Sunday, March 12, please join us for a free concert to preview our touring performance. We’ll be at Luther Memorial Lutheran Church in Blacksburg for a 60-minute concert beginning at 4 p.m. Admission is free and a free-will offering will be taken to support this trip. We hope to see you there! | EVENT DETAILS & DIRECTIONS
