The Paris Brass Band – Conductor Laurent Douvre

Multiple French champion of the discipline, the Paris Brass Band is considered the spearhead of the French Brass Band movement. French representative at the European Championships in Oslo 2013, Perth 2014, Freiburg 2015, Lille 2016, Ostend 2017 and Montreux 2019, the PBB has thus acquired a national and international reputation. The ensemble performs regularly throughout France and abroad during tours throughout Europe (Scandinavia, United Kingdom, Austria, Italy …) and Asia.

Already coming to Amboise in 2012, he was the winner in the 3 categories of the contest: Test-Piece, Mesic March Contest, Best Soloist, with as Test-Piece: Journey to the Center of the Earth (P. Graham)  –  Music March:  Arsenal (J. Van der Roost)  – Best Soloist  (Bastien Baumet at the Euphonium): Harlequin (P. Sparke). He therefore became The 2012 Champion.

It is with great pleasure that we will welcome them again in our beautiful city of Amboise.
