Present concerts and works featuring double reed instruments which excite and engage audience members, performers, and communities.

 

Inspire composers to write music for double reed instruments.

 

Promote and support the study of music.

Sing and promote music of the Great American Songbook.

Compose and perform music that is good for the soul.
