Brunswick Bands, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit corporation dedicated to expanding the performance of instrumental music in Brunswick County, North Carolina.
The Brunswick Concert Band was founded in 1985. Membership is open to any musician who can play at least at the level of a high school band – there are no auditions. Members range from near-neophytes to educators to professionals. Many players had not played with a group in years.
The Brunswick Big Band was created in 2005. Membership is by invitation as the instrumentation of a Big Band is very specific. Most Big Band members are members of the Concert Band.
Small ensembles of various kinds are available to perform. Examples include a brass band, saxophone quartet and other wind groups.
