Wapenplein
When:
Sun 15 Sep 2019

A few years ago, the Royal Catholic and the Royal Liberal St Cecilia Brass and Reed Band decided to work together again. Both societies were created in 1846 as a result of the division of the 'Sociëteit van Harmonie van Geel' (the Society of Concert Bands of Geel (Antwerp)). This fusion lead to a new band: the 'Centrumharmonie' (the Central Brass and Reed Band). Their goal is to make music together without a political context to offer quality and to integrate youth. Meanwhile, the group has now grown into a close group of 152 musicians who want to create quality music. Besides striving for quality, friendship and a pleasant atmosphere are both very important pillars of this band's success.
