"The Tacoma Concert Band's mission is to provide the Puget Sound community with a professional quality wind ensemble performing the very finest symphonic band music; to offer a high-quality performance opportunity to local wind and percussion musicians; to support and encourage the region's school band programs; and to reaffirm the community concert band's position in American music."
(1) Opportunity. We provide accomplished musicians an opportunity to perform the highest quality music literature for the concert band, bringing local, national and international audiences together through the universal language of music.
(2) Commitment to Community and Tradition. We have a commitment to share with our audience and our community the heritage, power and energy of live music. We perform both traditional and contemporary masterpieces of the concert band repertoire.
(3) Inspiration, Motivation and Education. We inspire and motivate young musicians with programs such as children's concerts, a student soloist competition and student participation in our musical performances. We provide music educators with a quality performance opportunity that benefits both them and their students.
(4) Creativity. We commission noted composers to create original works to be premiered by the Tacoma Concert Band thus enhancing the band's reputation, providing our audiences with a unique musical experience and helping to assure the continued growth and development of the concert band repertoire in America and throughout the world.
