Comber Brass

Welcome to the website of Comber Brass - the name for Comber Silver Band and our junior band - the Laureldale Brass Ensemble.

 

Based in the town of Comber in County Down, located at the northwest corner of Strangford Lough, there has been a Comber band for over 110 years.

 

With many band members coming from the Comber area, the band is proud to be at the heart of the community and performs at many engagements to strengthen this relationship.

Contest success

The band would like to congratulate Kelly Kaya on her winning best soloist in the Third grade brass section at the recent Festival of Brass 2014 held at Queen's University.

 

Kelly won with her performance of the cornet solo 'Carrickfergus'.

Royal Garden Party - Hillsborough Castle

Comber Silver were honoured to be invited to perform at a Royal Garden Party attended by Her Majesty, The Queen and His Royal Highness, The Duke of Edinburgh during their recent three day visit to Northern Ireland.

 

The garden party took place on a sunny afternoon on Tuesday 24th June at Hillsborough Castle.
