A symbol that looks like an archer's bow (also called curved brackets) that are used to connect two or more different staves in a musical score into a system. The brace will typically provide a visual connection between dependent parts (i.e. two piano staves) into a system. This should not be confused with the bracket that provides a visual connection between independent  parts into a system.
See more about the staff in the Appendix.
