Rathfarnham Concert Band was founded in 1980 and has been an integral part of our community here in Rathfarnham. Children as young as 8 begin their musical journey with the recorder classes in St Mary’s Boys School on the Grange Road. From there, they join the Tyro band where their musical journey continues.

In total we have five bands: a Tyro band for beginners, a Junior band, Intermediate band, Senior band, and more recently a Jazz band. We have band rehearsals, lessons and theory every Monday night and Band rehearsal every Sunday morning.
