Grafton Cornet Band

A traditional community band with all instruments and ages
welcoming listeners and players from all around southeastern Vermont.

Next rehearsal is Sunday, April 29, 2018. All band players with any experience are welcome to play along with us. Our guest director for this rehearsal is Emily Vaccaro.

Pre-season rehearsals are open to all--and a good way to blow out the cobwebs in your old high school instrument. Students are always welcome, too. Rehearsals are upstairs at the Old Fire House (map), always on a Sunday, 2:00-4:00 with a refreshment break (see "Upcoming" at right).


The Grafton Cornet Band welcomes all to our series of free summer concerts and parades (see the 2017 schedule). We play all sorts of traditional band music as we have for 151 years. Our concerts are informal, so bring chairs or a blanket and maybe a picnic. On rainy days, we play in the beautiful White Church in Grafton. More information…
