Our Mission: The Philadelphia Freedom Band seeks to be a place where anyone - lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) or straight - can enjoy playing and performing music in a friendly and supportive atmosphere. We are comprised of a wide variation of talented people, from beginners to college educated professional musicians. We come together to improve as individuals, perform for the public and be visible as folks who support the LGBT community. We welcome anyone who wants to play in our multiple bands (concert, marching and small ensembles) and understand our mission.
Our concert band holds two concerts annually, one in the spring and the other in the late fall. Using an interesting theme, we present a mix of music, including holiday songs, and auctioned donated items. Our concerts are always free to the public.
Our marching band participates in parades throughout the Delaware Valley. You will see us in Philadelphia, Allentown, Asbury Park, Narberth, Glenside and many other places. We are always looking for new members. Join us.
Our jazz band plays for smaller crowds and more intimate events. We love to play for fundraisers. We can make your event memorable.
Our Brass5 ensemble plays for smaller crowds and events. We play a variety of styles from somber to festive.
