Our Mission

Our Mission

We love music and people!

Our musicians are a collection of talented, dedicated non-professionals who combine a love of music with a desire for camaraderie who want to achieve their highest musical potential. That passion shows in all we do!

Come in anytime and talk to us! We love to discuss what our band is about. Regardless of your ability level or musical training  you can be a member of our organization.

We rehearse weekly on Thursday evenings from 7:00 - 9:00 pm at Trinity United Methodist Church.  700 N 20th St, Colorado Springs, CO.  Come and check us out!

Doug Downey, Director


It's always about you

Simply put, our mission is devoted to you--making the most of your musical talent and helping you achieve your goals, while having an enjoyable music experience.
