Remembering Numskull Brass Festival Caudete Third Edition

III Numskull Brass Festival Caudete was a step forward both in quantitative and qualitative terms. A new increase in the number of students (55), an increased audience attendance to the concerts and our first concert webcast were some of the highlights of that summer of 2017.

Thanks for your generosity!

Uno de los momentos más entrañables del festival fue la entrega de instrumentos por parte de nuestros colaboradores Sanganxa y Schagerl a la ONG Música Anpil, un proyecto desarrollado por músicos profesionales provenientes de diferentes orquestas que busca crear una sólida red de profesionales de la música clásica que coopere con las diferentes instituciones culturales haitianas para que profesores y alumnos dispongan de las herramientas, técnicas y conocimientos con las que desarrollar de manera independiente y completa sus aptitudes y capacidades, con el consiguiente beneficio para el conjunto de la sociedad.
