Sunday 28 August at 9 a.m. the local brass band Corpo Musicale di Loveno will hold a traveling concert through the streets of the fascinating village of Loveno (Menaggio).
The Corpo Musicale di Loveno, founded in 1843, is one of the longest-running bands in Lombardy. Since the day of its first concert, the band has never ceased to exist, with only two suspensions due to the two world wars. It always participates in all religious ceremonies in Loveno and the surrounding area, and has been invited to perform concerts in neighbouring towns.
It has also won numerous awards and prizes in band competitions. In 2011, on the occasion of the 150th Anniversary of the Unification of Italy, the Corpo Musicale di Loveno was recognised as a Group of Municipal Interest on a national level, and thus an integral part of Italy's cultural heritage. Currently composed of around 50 musicians, it is a real wind orchestra: under the direction of Maestro Bruno Selva, it performs a repertoire ranging from classical music to opera and modern music.
