Saxton's Cornet Band



Saxton's Cornet Band

Recognized nationally as the premiere brass band, Saxton’s Cornet Band embodies the historical style and energetic sounds of a Civil War era brass ensemble. First established by Henry Saxton during the antebellum period, the band was reorganized in 1989 to preserve and recreate the concert experience of nearly 150 years ago.

Each performance historically reflects the mid-nineteenth century spirit with animated music, dramatic readings and period humor.

Featured regularly at the Great American Brass Band Festival in Danville, KY, Saxton’s Cornet Band has also performed at National Park Service sites around the country including Gettysburg National Military Park. In 2001, the band performed during President Bush's inaugural.
