The orchestra has an exciting history with numerable concerts and concert tours in Denmark and Europe, prestigious competition results, CD releases, premieres and compositions commissioned from both national and international composers, among them Søren Hyldgaard.

He has tutored at the Royal Danish Music Conservatory and was a member of the jury at international competitions for symphonic bands.Throughout the last ﬁve decades, Jensen has led The Danish Concert Band. He has turned it from a local school orchestra into the dynamic, innovative and well-functioning concert band it is today.
