The Denver Concert Band is a group of adult musicians who enjoy instrumental music as an avocation. We are volunteer musicians who rehearse and perform year-round in the Denver metropolitan area and around Colorado. Over the years, the Band has traveled overseas to participate in various music festivals.
From October to April, the Denver Concert Band presents formal concerts.
From May to October (and sometimes November) the Band presents community concerts in various locations around Colorado. Most Community Concerts are FREE.
Smaller groups of performers from within the Band are also available for your special occasion.
