It was enough to see the faces during the opening ceremony of the festival on Friday, June 3rd in the courtyard of the Royal Castle of Amboise to attend the draw of the competition and a mini-concert beforehand to understand what was going on in the heads of the members present.

Then to note the enthusiasm of the team of 50 volunteers to reconnect with their commitment to make this edition, after two years of interruption, the best possible in order to satisfy on the one hand the members of the brass bands present but also the public returned.

Finally, what a joy to hear again this particular sound, this amalgam of brass instruments and percussion, recognizable among all musical forms, in repertoires of creation but also of walking, soloistic, variety, musical comedy of classical standards …

Undoubtedly, the year 2022 will have marked a new beginning, after having organized 25 editions beforehand, and revived a dynamic that does not deny a priori since many ensembles are already registered for the 2023 edition (from 2 to 4 June 2023).

The organizing committee is therefore very happy to have been able to find this path knowing that it is always difficult to restart after such a period. She also thanks all the institutions and communities that have continued, despite the difficulties, to believe in our movement and to support us.

See you at the beginning of June 2023 to live a future musical moment with a program that will be unveiled in March 2023 and that promises beautiful discoveries.

Pascal Caraty – President
