The South Sound Symphonic Band, formerly known as the Federal Way Symphonic Band, was founded in 1982. The group continues to be dedicated to providing high quality performances of concert band music as well as promoting band music awareness and music education activities in the South Puget Sound region.

As a non-profit organization, the South Sound Symphonic band consists of talented amateur and semiprofessional musicians who enjoy the challenge of rehearsing and performing to high musical standards, as well as friendships created by the group.

The band is a non-profit organization and presents free concerts throughout the year. We subsist solely through membership dues and community donations which are used to pay for venue and rehearsal space, printed materials, new music, and student scholarships.
