BARCELONA SYMPHONIC BAND

The Barcelona Symphonic Band (Banda Municipal de Barcelona) was founded as a wind and percussion orchestra in 1886, bringing together a timeless tradition of musical formations that had played at the city council’s solemn ceremonies. Between 1915 and 1939, the Barcelona Symphonic Band experienced one of its most glorious ages under the leadership of Joan Lamote de Grignon, who firmly established the band and secured its ties with the people of the city. Since then, the band has come a long way and is celebrating its 130th anniversary in 2016. It has lived in different parts of the city, it has been led by different conductors and, in its new phase, is looking towards a future filled with challenges. It is presently the resident band at L’Auditori, where it offers a established season of concerts. Since 2008 its resident conductor has been Salvador Brotons. Under his leadership, the band aims to expand its repertoire by performing newly-created works and strengthening the classical repertoire from around the world. It is also taking on the new challenge of playing its music beyond the city, with performances all over Catalonia and Spain.
