Our entire Atlanta Freedom Bands family invites you to join us for the 2013 LGBA Conference. This milestone event for Atlanta Freedom Bands celebrates our band’s 20th year of representing our community with music, visibility and pride. The conference also coincides with the 2013 Atlanta Pride Festival, providing a rainbow-colored backdrop of exciting activities during your visit. We invite all our LGBA musicians, color guards, cheer groups and friends from all over the world to join us for a festive and fun 2013 conference!
The highlights of our conference include: the “Color Our World” massed band concert, the premiere of a newly commissioned work by a gay Atlanta composer, and the largest ever parade block marching down Atlanta’s famed Peachtree Street in front of 250,000 people!
