Saxton’s Cornet Band

Frankfort, KY

Saxton’s Cornet Band recreates the sounds, appearance, and conduct of brass bands during the antebellum and Civil War eras. Their programs are full of energy and are very entertaining both musically and visually. The performance is a complete historically accurate concert experience from the mid-nineteenth century, complete with dramatic readings and period humor in addition to the excellent music. Reorganized in 1989, the Saxton’s Cornet Band of today strives to maintain the spirit and high standards set by the original ensemble. Saxton’s Cornet Band is a Kentucky and National treasure.
