- to foster and promote wind music and the adult band concept through concerts, conferences, tours, recordings, publication, and commissions.
- to assist in the music education of young people – the future generation of adult musicians – through the presentation of concerts and exposure to guest artists and guest conductors.
- to provide our members with an opportunity for musical expression, growth, and fellowship
