About

LeBAM currently seeks to develop Harmonic Bands, which are performing ensembles, consisting of several members of the wind and percussion instrument families (excluding string instruments, for the time being). Thus the instruments that are currently taught by the various LeBAM branches are the following:

  • Woodwind instruments family: recorder, flute, clarinet and saxophone (alto, tenor and baritone).
  • Brass instruments family: French horn, trumpet, trombone, Euphonium and Tuba.
  • Percussion instruments family: Glockenspiel (orchestra bells), timpani, snare drum, base drum, cymbals, triangle, marimba … etc.

The repertoire of such harmonic bands will be varies and include original compositions (that will hopefully be commissioned by the association), arranged classical music, light music, and popular tunes.

It is different from the traditional bands current in some parts of Lebanon, which usually play without polyphony, mostly in religious or political events and funerals. The primary function of the projected Harmonic Band will be to perform concerts during the year, both outdoors and indoors. Every effort will be made to make the concerts free of charge to promote access and appreciation of quality music to the widest possible public.

Every band should include a minimum number of instruments required to play the expected repertoire. The bands could acquire more instruments depending both on available funds and interested potential musicians. Thus, the number of instruments and of musicians is expected to grow with time.
