Under the direction of Jeff Chesser, one of the band directors at Dublin Scioto High School, the Concert Band of Dublin began rehearsalsÂ at the end of January adding a concert band to theÂ Dublin Community Bands organization. Its other groupsÂ include the rebirthÂ of the historic Dublin Cornet Band, the Dublin Silver Band (a British-style brass band), and theÂ Emerald City Swing Orchestra.
