The INSA Lyon Harmonie Universitaire is organizing the first edition of the Wind Wood Brass Festival.
Following an opening concert by the INSA Harmonie, the wind bands of Caluire and Eyebens will provide musical entertainment during the day.
The evening concert will be performed by the Wind Orchestra Ostrava (part of the Technical University of Ostrava in the Czech Republic), a special partner of the INSA Harmonie. The INSA students won first place at the 17th International Competition of Symphonic Bands held in Ostrava in 2015. The Brass Band de Lyon will wrap up the evening.
The INSA Lyon Harmonie Universitaire is made up of 60 musicians, bringing together both INSA students and people from other walks of life. Led by Mehdi Lougraïda, conductor of the Musique des Sapeurs-Pompiers de Paris band, the INSA Harmonie gives several concerts per year on campus and in the Lyon area. It is also regularly invited to take part in international events.
