Philadelphia's Community Band - we welcome anyone who can read music.

A Musical Feast

The Philadelphia Freedom Band cordially invites you to a concert in celebration of our Tenth Anniversary!

Nothing nourishes the soul quite like sharing a delicious and lovingly prepared meal with friends. It is customary to choose a special restaurant or favorite food to honor milestones in our lives, and that’s precisely what PFB has decided to do this year, with one caveat: every course of the meal we’re serving is meant to be consumed aurally.

On December 9th, at 3 o’clock in the evening, we will all enjoy a musical feast fit for royalty. Join us as we toast to the genius of Bernstein, nibble and nosh to the sound of Saint-Saens, stretch our belts to the beefiest of Copland’s works, and cleanse the palate with some Schumann. You’ll want to save room for dessert, though—we have a few sweet treats prepared as well!

Discover Music History All Around You

History, music and places in Philadelphia are all around us. The Philadelphia Freedom Band encourages you to discover the musical history with us through this page.

Discover, our Philadelphia music history initiative, explores Philadelphia's role in the creation and evolution of American and world music, instruments and movements.

Marching Band - All Year Long

Yes, our marching band performs all year long. We have parades in the spring and summer, cheer sections (for local races) in the fall and even caroling around the holidays.

You can join at any time.

You may even see us as part of a flash mob here and there.

We are very proud to be supported by the Philadelphia Cultural Fund.

We are a proud member of the Lesbian & Gay Band Association.
