Show current and past repertoire

A marching band is a skillful blend of crisp trumpet, hefty trombone, the saxophone family (the Baritone i.e. the grandfather, the wacky uncle Ténor, and last but not least, the Alto), dashing clarinet, exuberant piccolo, honourable euphonium, mighty drums, and the famous sousaphone!!
Our rehearsals are every Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 20h to 22h in the NIR basement at the ENS.
Whether you're just beginning or fully trained on your instrument, don't hesitate to come and join us!
We would be happy to have you in our ranks!
We lend instruments to any COF member wishing to discover the joy of playing music in our band!
