Donating to or Hiring the Unifour Brass Ensemble

Since we are recognized as 501(c)3 nonprofit organization by the IRS (letter of determination is available), all donations are fully tax deductible. All donations must be used to further the mission and operation of the UBE.  The monies we collect go to fund free concerts for our community or pay for our recordings.  If sponsoring a concert for a retirement home, church, school or community group would be to you interest, we would be happy to discuss this.

If you would like to engage us for an event, our standard fees are (June 2007 increase in effect):

Worship Assistance - $750 for the first service, $500 for subsequent services on same day.

Extra players would be available for $150/$75 per professional or $100/$50 per college student

Hymn parts and descants will be available at no extra cost if in our library or as time permits for composition.  Condensation of existing anthem parts, creating anthem parts from scores, and re-orchestration of music is available for an extra fee to be determined on a piece by piece basis.  We make every effort to schedule our regular Wednesday evening at the church for no extra fee, but sometimes this is not possible due to scheduling or distance.  A rehearsal fee may be negotiated on a case by case basis.

Weddings or first hour Reception/Party music - $1000 ($350/hour for each additional hour or partial hour)

Recitals - $1000

Mileage and other expenses will also have to be calculated for jobs more than 30 minutes travel from Hickory, NC

It is best to contact us well in advance, especially if the event occurs in November, December, April, May or July. If you have further questions or to obtain more information about the UBE, email -- call Tim Phillips at 828-729-4541 -- or write:
