Who is Dublin Community Bands?

Dublin Community Bands is first and foremost a community. We are musicians young and old who come together to share our love of music with Dublin and beyond. Our 150+ musicians are dedicated to making high-quality arts entertainment and education accessible to all. The organization was founded in 2010 as the revival of the 19th century Dublin Cornet Band. Since its founding, it has grown into four large ensembles, several small groups, and a youth brass band. Join us for a concert (or a rehearsal) and be part of the community that is Dublin Community Bands!
