Our Purpose

The purpose of the band is threefold:

  1. To provide opportunities for amateur musicians to perform and grow musically.
  2. To enhance the quality of life in Chatfield and the surrounding areas.
  3. To continue Chatfield’s proud tradition as “Bandtown, U.S.A.”

We strive to give our members the experience of playing many types of band literature, while giving special attention to preserving the community band tradition.

The Chatfield Brass Band, Inc. is a non-profit, 503c organization.
