The purpose of the Charlestown Band Program is to be of vital service and importance to its members, the school and community, and to the art of music as a serious and distinctive medium of musical expression. To its members, the band endeavors to provide effective experience, training, and growth in basic musicianship, in musical culture, and general citizenship through discipline, organization, practice, and performance. To the school and community, the band offers appropriate performances and concerts in the interest of musical culture and entertainment and for the enhancement of school spirit and character. To music as an art, the band endeavors to bring increasing artistry, understanding, dignity, and respect through concerted individual and group efforts.
