Grafton Cornet Band

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

The Old Fire Station. The Grafton Band rehearses upstairs. The stairway is the leftmost door.

The Band welcomes Glen D'Eon as our new director. Glen is director of music at Fall Mountain Regional High School in New Hampshire who brings out the best with bands.

Pre-season rehearsals continue with the next on April 14. We meet upstairs at the Old Fire Station (map), always on a Sunday, 2:00-4:00 with a refreshment break (see "Upcoming" at right). All band players with any experience are invited.


The Grafton Cornet Band welcomes all to our series of free summer concerts and parades (see the tentative 2019 schedule). We play all sorts of traditional band music as we have for 152 years. Our concerts are informal, so bring chairs or a blanket and maybe a picnic. On rainy days, we play in the beautiful Community Church in Grafton. More information…
