From tower music to New Orleans

we attended this great school concert. In the program of the Lituus Brass Band we learned about the music from the early Renaissance tower music to classical opera and operetta literature. Together with a brief introduction related to the given era and music we got an overview of the change and development of European classical music. In the sequel, the Debrecen Dixieland Jazz Band began with early jazz and ragtime music based on New Orleans tradition to help us  listen  to jazz and dixieland music. Since the two bands and the style they represent share the same musical roots, we have had a spectacular experience of the early jazz-era, the so called Marching Band formation of the 20. century.

The concert is the TOP-6.9.2. -  project „ Strengthening identity and cohesion in Debrecen districts.”
