Sabina Music Band
The cultural association “Sabina Music Band” was formed in 2017 in Casoeria, Rieti thanks to a small group of musicians joined by the same desire to create a music band, in the field of marching bands, who play the whole spectrum of traditional music from the Sabina area. Despite its recent foundation, the group already has over 30 musicians from both Sabina Reatina and Sabina Romana. Under the direction of M. Umberto di Guiseppe ,m the Band specialises in presenting a a varied repertoire, which always entertains the public and fills the musicians with a passion.
Participants for the Rome New Year Parade & Festival will be announced throughout the next few months.
