Brunswick Bands Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit corporation dedicated to expanding the performance of instrumental music in Brunswick County, North Carolina.
Brunswick Bands was founded in 1985 with the creation of the Brunswick County Concert Band. 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 neophytes to educators to professionals. Many players had not played with a group in years.
The Brunswick Big Band was created under this umbrella 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.
