Welcome to the Chesapeake Silver Cornet Brass Band Home
Formed in 1996, the Chesapeake Silver Cornet Brass Band is comprised of amateur and professional musicians from New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Delaware. Following the brass banding tradition, we are an all-volunteer organization. The band performs a varied repertoire of contemporary and traditional brass band music throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.
On April 17, 2010, the band won Second Place in our division in the North American Brass Band Association Competition, held in Raleigh, North Carolina.
On March 30, 2012, the band won Second Place in our division in the North American Brass Band Association Competition, held in Cincinnati, Ohio.
On April 13, 2013, the band won First Place in our division in the North American Brass Band Association Competition held in Cincinnati, Ohio.
More recently, on March 24, 2018, and again on March 23, 2019, the band won Runner Up in both years, in our division at the Dublin Festival of Brass in Dublin, Ohio.
While the pandemic halted our ability to rehearse and perform together for more than a year, it did not stop us from performing separately. Below is a video of some of our performers recorded separately in their homes and combined into a composite video, of one of the band favorites, now available on YouTube, by clicking on the link below.
