The Band

The Danish Concert Band is a band that develops constantly - both in regards

to the individual players, but also because the band loves exploring new music, challenges and targets. Because of the great opportunities this band offers, it

attracts some of Denmark's future professional musicians. The band then

benefits from their talents as both a band member but also as a soloist. The

Danish Concert Band has very enthusiastic amateur musicians and is proud to

be in the high end of Danish amateur music.

The band has a unique community feel due to the fact that it is a band which

contains multiple generations and friendships between all ages. Those relations

are strengthened when the band travels throughout Europe, giving concerts and participating in festivals.

The Danish Concert Band was founded in 1968 and today consists of 65 players.

The band is economically supported by the municipality of Rødovre. The

municipality has supported the band from the very beginning.  ​For recordings

and tours the band is supported by public and private foundations.  

The band regularly participates in competitions and has achieved the

Danish Championship as well as the Nordic and European Championships.

The latest in 2017, where the band won the Danish Championship and will

therefore be participating in the European Championship 2018 in Bruxelles.

The band has four annual concerts in Kulturhuset Viften in Rødovre. The

summer concert is held in the Concert Hall at Tivoli Gardens. Generally, you

will experience at least one soloist at the performances. These soloists will be

one of the band's players or a professionel musician.

International collaboration

The Danish Concert Band collaborates with both Danish and international

composers, where the close collaboration with the Dutch/American composer

Johan de Meij is worth mentioning, as well as the good collaboration with the

Danish composer Søren Hyldgaard. These collaborations has lead to several

premieres in Denmark and other very exciting projects. 

The conductor

The band wouldn't be where it is today, if it hadn't been for the conductor

Jørgen 'Misser' Jensen. He started directing the band, when it was only three

years old, in 1970.

Misser started his own musical career in the Tivoli Youth Garden, where he

played the clarinet. In 1975, at the age of 27, he became the solo clarinet in

Copenhagen Phil, until he in 1980 changed to a position as the alterning solo

clarinet in The Danish National Symphony orchestra until 2012 where he retired.

He still plays in Collegium Musicum and teaches at The Royal Danish Music

Conservatory.
