MUNICIPAL BAND OF ESTEPONA: 83 years of making music

To talk about the history of the Music Band of Estepona, Artistic and Cultural Heritage of the city, we have to go back to the early nineteenth century, where there was a real explosion of this type of musical groups throughout the country, based on the military formations that were the seedbed of the future musical societies of neighborhood character.

It was 1940 the year of its creation, with a total of twenty instruments from a military auction, with a cost of three thousand pesetas of the time and with 17 former musicians from previous groups of the city; that makes it one of the oldest uninterrupted band formations of the municipal bands that currently remain in the country.

Annually, the Band celebrates about thirty performances, among which are the massive concerts held at the Recinto Musical ‘Maestro Navarro Mollor’ in the Summer Season, the Portico of Holy Week, the concert of Santa Cecilia and the Extraordinary Christmas Concert, as well as ceremonial acts of the City Council, among others. Since July 2010, by competitive examination, the artistic technical director of the Municipal Band and Music Academy is José Antonio López Camacho.

In May 2015, the Municipal Band was elected by the M. I. Academy of Valencian Music to participate in the ‘Muestra Internacional de la Música Valenciana 2015’, and in the same year the 75th Anniversary of the re-foundation of the Municipal Band of Estepona was commemorated. On that occasion, the City Council dedicated a mural entitled “Aires de Música” by the artist Blanca Larrauri.

Also, the Sports and Cultural Foundation 24 Hours Sports, in the section of special mentions, awarded him the Golden Almenara Tower for his contribution to Culture, and the Plenary of the City Council of Estepona, unanimously, the highest award, with the imposition of the Gold Medal of the City, for being “the greatest exponent of musical and traditional cultural heritage of the popular feeling of the city”.
