    Around the World in 80 Minutes

    Tired of expensive flights, long stop-overs and questionable hotels?

    Wouldn't it be nice to experience in person something from multiple cultures without having to pack your bags every few days or weeks?

    That is exactly what the Dunedin Concert Band is preparing to do for you on Sunday, February 25th.

    The DCB is a community of like-minded folk who love cultural variety and experience it through live music, transforming the way we view the world from our own little corner of Florida. With music from Norway and Japan to Brazil and Ireland, this one-time performance is the place to be to show your friends just how cultured you really are.

    We don't charge an agency fee. We don't make you feel awkward.

    We learn a lot. And we do have fun.

    Register now to reserve your seat!

    Around the World in 80 Minutes
