Around the Sound Community Band
The purpose of any band is to give enrichment and joy to life. We hold that live music is enriching, exciting, and exhilarating to both performers and audience. It should be available to all people to either play or listen to as they desire. We see our dual mission as creating an environment in which adults of any ability or degree of band experience can enjoy the benefits of playing, while bringing live music to people in the community who may not otherwise have it to enjoy. Our program is designed to meet these two needs and they are the foundation for our further development.
