Banda Municipal de Lleida is a Fanfare orchestra from the city of Lleida (Catalonia). Founded in 1914 and refounded in 1996 under the direction of Mr. Amadeu Urrea Pérez, who still conducts the band.
The Band has recorded two CDs, the first one being Música i músics de Lleida which summarizes the intense activity of our band and the project for recovering lost scores for band and the projection of young soloists. In 2007 the band recorded Fem 10 years to celebrate our 10th anniversary.
