Drum and bugle corps invited to Malta festival

Applications are being received from drum and bugle corps interested in participating in the third “Mellieha International Band Festival” being held in Mellieha, Malta, between March 27 and 30, 2005.

The event is a non-competitive music festival. It is a celebration of music and an occasion for musicians to meet and enjoy each other’s music.

In the two editions organized so far, the Mellieha International Band Festival was open for just brass and concert bands. As a natural development of our festival, we intend to open the 2005 edition for drum and bugle corps and marching bands.

The second festival, held between April 11 and 15, 2004, we had the participation of the following bands: Manger Musikklag (Norway), Universal Brass Band (Switzerland), Belvedere Concert Band (U.K.), Doncaster Concert Band (U.K.), The Royal Welsh College of Music Brass Group (U.K.), Ghaqda Muzikali Imperial (Malta) and Socjeta’ Filarmonika La Vittoria.

Interested corps should contact the festival organizer at festival@plusmalta.com or by phone at 00356 79618251.
