Donation of $2,500 Provides Uniforms for Dublin Cornet Band: The Dublin Foundation Supports the Dublin Historical Society

Apr 1, 2010 | Archive, Dublin Community Other

The Dublin Historical Society wanted to revive the Dublin Cornet Band in honor of the city’s bicentennial. The Dublin Cornet Band was originally formed in 1879 and toured by wagon through Central Ohio until its final concert in 1929.

Professional musicians, as well as local band and music teachers from Dublin City Schools, joined the revived Dublin Cornet Band. A grant from The Dublin Foundation provides band members with uniforms that resemble the original ones worn in 1879. It is hoped that the band will become Dublin’s Historical Music Ambassadors for many years to come.
