moravian brass band union of south africa
Welcome to our website

The Moravian Brass Band Union of South Africa (also known as the BBSA) is a Union within the Moravian Church in South Africa.  The Union was founded, on the instructions of the church authorities, in 1951 to promote brass band work within the congregations with a view to enabling them to answer their biblical calling to "Praise God with the Sound of Trumpet", Psalm 150.  Despite our firm foundation within the Moravian Church, membership of the Union is not restricted to Moravians only.  The Union works closely with other Evangelical Brass Band Associations in Southern Africa and overseas.  Although we remain faithful to our primary calling, we are also mindful of the need for us to work within the broader community for the general upliftment and empowerment of the community.  This is in keeping with the historical role of the MCSA and indeed, the Unitas Fratum.

We welcome you to our website and trust that you will find the contents interesting and stimulating.
