It all started in 1861

The Denver City Band was formed in 1861 to bring culture to a mining town. More than 160 years later, we're still here, but today we're known as the Denver Municipal Band. We're also still bringing music to the Denver-area community. In fact, today, our mission is to bring music to Denver-area residents (from Westminster to Highlands Ranch) for free in parks near them. We also help Denver-area youth develop a passion for music and refine their musical talents.

About us

Music variety, leading-Colorado musicians, and an executive director and conductor integrated into the fabric of Denver music. The Denver Municipal Band has all that and more. For more than 100 years, we've been bringing free concerts to Denver's most beautiful parks

Education programs for young musicians

The Denver Municipal Band also provides educational programs in the Denver area. We guide young players as musicians and participants in Denver's rich, cultural community. We provide musical opportunities for underprivileged communities and champion the growth of our next generation of professional Denver-area musicians.
