About Us

VISION & MISSION STATEMENT

The Minnesota Freedom Band is a Twin Cities-based (Minneapolis/St Paul), non-profit Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and Allied (GLBTA) concert, jazz, and marching band.  We are committed to presenting quality performances, providing opportunities for our members to improve musicianship, and gathering to build relationships with each other and with our community.

OUR CORE VALUES

 

Building a positive community

We build a positive community by providing a safe environment, celebrating humanity through music, and being a visible role model for others within the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and allied community.

Integrity in Communication and Actions

We build trust among others and ourselves through mutual accountability.

Diversity

We celebrate different backgrounds in music, education, skills, leadership, and membership. We appreciate the gifts each musician offers to the band.

Musical Growth

We foster the talents and musicianship of individual musicians as well as the band.
