The Mile High Freedom Bands include three full performing ensembles, a youth program, and numerous chamber ensembles.
|Freedom Winds is our full symphonic band. The ensemble presents four major events per year with repertoire that includes traditional concert band music, contemporary pops literature, and collaborative performances. Rehearsals are on Thursday evenings from 7-9pm at Historic Grant Avenue.|
|Freedom Swing presents several major events each year with tunes that include jazz standards as well as an eclectic mix of styles performed by both a full big band and smaller combo groups. Both the big band and smaller combos of Freedom Swing are available for events all around the Denver metro. Rehearsals are on Tuesday evenings from 7-9pm at Historic Grant Avenue.|
|The Freedom Corps is the MHFB marching ensemble. The band performs in support of Denver Pridefest each year at both the children’s parade and the pride parade as well as in the annual Denver St. Patrick’s Day parade, a tradition going back to the 1980s. Members of the band have also traveled to LGBT pride festivals in the region, including Colorado Springs Pride and Albuquerque Pride. Rehearsals are scheduled prior to marching events at Historic Grant Avenue.|
|Freedom Youth is our brand new youth outreach program. Headed by Assistant Director Donnie Lemley, Freedom Youth's mission is to reach out to LGBT youth and provide a safe and welcoming space for young musicians.|
|MHFB supports several Chamber Ensembles made up of different members of the band. These ensembles allow for varying levels of skill and different styles of music, and are a great way to participate in the organization aside from affiliation in one of the three large ensembles!|
