Dublin Concert Band

Dublin Concert Band is an acclaimed ensemble of over 50 talented musicians. Our ethos is all about making excellent music in an environment of respect, friendship, and fun. We are a truly intergenerational group with musicians aged 18-80 coming together to rehearse and perform in around 20 concerts annually.

Founded in 1958 and based in Dublin's city centre, we enjoy close ties with our community and play an important role in Dublin's cultural life. Dublin City Council engages the Band to perform in Dublin's parks each summer, keeping thousands of Dubliners and Visitors entertained in the city's beautiful green spaces. In 2018 we celebrated our 60th Anniversary with a sold-out Concert at the National Concert Hall, Dublin, and in October 2019 the national broadcaster RTÉ lyric fm invited us to give an hour-long studio performance broadcast live to an audience of 35,000 listeners on the station's Weekend Drive show.

The Band has won the Irish National Band Championships on more than 40 occasions, and has represented Ireland at international festivals in Denmark, Italy, Germany, France and the Netherlands.

We enjoy performing a wide range of music, from virtuosic contemporary classical works, right through to big band, swing, funk, musical theatre and film music.

In January 2019 Dublin Concert Band began an exciting new era with the appointment of our new Musical Director Brendan Breslin. We are looking forward to many years of making more excellent music and lifelong friendships - at home and abroad.
