Two historic performance groups, Associazione Filarmonica Vejanese & A.S.D. Majoorettes Medullio have been confirmed to play Rome New Year Festival 2020.
Associazione Filarmonica Vejanese
The Associazione Filarmonice Vejanese was founded in 1906 in Vejano, a village in the Viterbo area with about two thousand souls. It is socially and culturally committed in the area in handling down the band tradition and the passion of music. Since 1992 it has been directed by Maestro Antonio Moretti who has expanded the concert and parade repertoire with songs ranging from classical to modern. The peculiar attention to the socio-educational aspect of music brings many people closer to the school and consequently to the band, which today has 120 members.
The Vejanese Philharmonic Association is the official band of the Santa Rosa Machine Transport in Viterbo, recognised as a UNESCO intangible Heritage, for 25 years.
A.S.D. Majoorettes Medullio
The A.S.S. Majorettes Medullia is a recent evolution of the Medullia majorettes, a group born around 1956 and whose staff counts around 25 elements ranging from 6 to 25 years.

Priority and purpose of the association is to divulge this wonderful sport synonymous with discipline and aggregation.
