Municipal Band Mission Statement

The Sterling Municipal Band’s mission is deeply rooted in the concept of “community” and in encouraging involvement in music for people at all stages of life. The SMB’s mission is to be a leader in performance and music education, while reaffirming the heritage of bands in America.

This mission incorporates five objectives:

- to make a substantial contribution to musical life locally and nationally.

- to give our audiences memorable performance experiences with the highest quality wind music in a wide range of musical styles.

- 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
