The love for music is the engine of our orchestra
Orchestra di Fiati di Valle Camonica is a nonprofit organization that was established in 2003. What unites us, and the pushing drive for our entire path, is the desire to make music together at the best possible level.
This year we have been selected among 80 groups from around the world to be among the 10 orchestras that will perform at the WASBE (World Association for Symphonic Bands and Ensembles) World Conference , which will take place in Holland on July 18-23, 2017.
We will perform on July 20 at 5 pm at Tivolivredenburg in Utrecht, with the direction of Denis Salvini. Guests of the orchestra in the Dutch tour will be Devid Ceste at the euphonium, who will be soloist in Johan de Meij's "UFO Concert", and Maestro Douglas Bostock.
We are poor but beautiful (and excited!)
The Dutch journey that is waiting for us involves the displacement of 60 people, their instruments (some of which are not exactly pocket size ...), their overnights and meals. In short, a very ambitious undertaking!
For this project we can only rely on our strength, and that is why we launch this crowdfunding: we need support to cope at least partially with the costs. We estimated that we will need around € 20,000 for this trip, and relying on all of you for 25% of this amount will make the business less difficult. In return, we will do our very best to perform the most amazing music EVER!
Here we are :)
During our 14 years of life, we had the opportunity to play with some of the most significant soloists in the international scene. We do not want to stop here, and Utrecht will be the next important stage in our history.
Here are some of the musicians with whom we have had the honor to play:
Trombone – Karajan Akademie Berlino, Arena di Verona

Project created by
Orchestra Fiati di Valle Camonica
We started in 2003, a group of conservatory comrades with the desire to continue playing together. 14 years after we are still here, other friends have joined, and this summer we will have one of the most beautiful opportunities ever offered to an Italian wind orchestra!
We count on your help to continue with our dream ...
