Welcome to great music, great times, and great community!

Upcoming  Performances

The Minnesota Freedom Band is a Twin Cities-based non-profit Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and Allied (GLBTA) music arts group committed to presenting

quality performances, providing oppor-tunities for our members to improve musicianship, and gathering to build relationships with each other and with our community.

To achieve this mission, we operate three musical groups with often overlapping membership:

• Concert  Band consists of 45 - 50 musicians in three major sections:

  •  Woodwinds (flute, clarinet, sax, etc)
  •  Brass (trumpet, trombone, tuba, etc)

  •  Percussion (drums, timpani, etc)
• Music consists of a variety of genres, including classic
al, folk, pop, and traditional music.
• Auditions are N
OT required -- we accept diverse range of musical expertise. Your section leader may test your proficiency to determine chair / part assignments.

 Freedom  Jazz! is a 20-piece Big Band Jazz Ensemble.

• Music ranges from classic jazz standards to more contemporary popular charts, and often features soloists. 

• Auditions ARE required, with a special emphasis  on sight reading and improvisation

 Marching Band composition varies between 20 and 30 musicians, depending on who is available for performance dates. All marching instrumentation is welcome, with a special need for percussionists. 
• Music consists of traditional marches,

plus band arrangements of

popular contemporary songs.

• Auditions are NOT required, but experience in marching while playing an

instrument is desired.

You can choose to play with one, two, or all three groups, depending on your time availability for rehearsals and individual practice. 

No longer have an instrument? We can probably help you with that, too!
