Who we are
Triangle Pride Band, a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, is an ally and community band program in the Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill area of central North Carolina. We welcome all interested adults (18+), regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, age, or ability, to join us in uplifting our community through music.
Triangle Pride Band consists of three main performance groups:
- Symphonic Concert Band
- Marching/Pep Band
- Color Guard
All groups are non-auditioned geared for most skill levels with rehearsal and performance schedules that accommodate working North Carolinians. Triangle Pride Band welcomes all community members to enjoy our accessible and seasonal performances such as concerts, parades, and pop-up pep band events. You can find us yearly at our fall and spring concerts, Out! Raleigh Pride Festival, Durham Pride, Raleigh’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade, Raleigh Night Markets, and many other venues as we collaborate with local event coordinators.
Our mission is to provide performance opportunities for North Carolina's LGBTQ+ community members and allies.
Through our modalities of performance groups, we welcome you to bring artistic expression and music performance back into your life. As musicians move on to their adult lives they often lose chances to rehearse and perform. Triangle Pride Band exists to fill that gap for local area musicians to pick up their instruments again.
Our vision is to lift up our community through music in an accepting environment for all.
The Triangle Pride Band is committed to providing accessible, high-quality music experiences to the LGBTQ+ community and their allies in central North Carolina. We aim to strengthen our community through sharing our love of music and promoting social equity, arts education, and queer visibility.
