    • -BRIMS does not turn any student away for financial reasons.

  • BRIMS Instrument Library

    • BRIMS has a growing library of musical instruments which enables students who do not own an instrument to participate in classes. Once purchased or donated, these instruments also need upkeep and refurbishment, an added expense.

  • Visiting Artist Fund

    • Throughout the years BRIMS has brought the very best in Irish music, song and dance to Charlottesville.  There are many costs associated with hosting artists; membership dollars can be used to offset some of these expenses. 
      Most recently BRIMS hosted:

      • Fiachra O'Regan, with Quebecois musicians Sophie Lavoie (fiddle) & Andre Marchand (guitar)

      • Steph Germia (Irish flute & singing) & Up She Flew

      • Frankie Gavin with Louise Costello & Tommy McCarthy
