“Twelve drummers drumming, eleven pipers piping…”

07.12.2015 - There’s something particularly stirring about the sound of a marching or military band…and this Christmas you have the chance to hear just that at a very special concert hosted by Adeje council in the Magma Arte & Congresos Centre on December 19.

For this great event, the musical unit of the Canarian Command and the Infantry Brigade Marching Band Nº2, ‘Canarias’ XVI will perform in the south of Tenerife for the first time,  with the Adeje patron band and the Guía de Isora Virgen de la Luz band also playing.  Joining them will be a choir made up of 200 children from the borough, in collaboration with EMMA, the Adeje school of Music and Dance.

Entry is just €1 with monies going to the Asociación de San Juan Centre for curative education and social therapy for people with special needs. 

The musical unit of the Canarian Command, currently under the baton of the director of music, Capitan Miguel Ángel Mateo Gijón, with 34 military musicians, plays at all official military functions, and is also frequently seen at events and religious festivals in Santa Cruz and La Laguna. 

The Infantry Brigade Marching Band Nº2, ‘Canarias’ XVI was founded in 1988 and brings together soldiers from different units.  It features 15 buglers, five pipers, and 15 drummers, under the direction of second lieutenant and band master Miguel Pitalua Ballesteros. 

Looking forward to the event, Adeje mayor José Miguel Rodríguez Fraga says “we are delighted to be able to offer this concert to the public at Christmas as part of our extensive programme.” 

A full list Adeje’s Christmas events is available in English at: www.adeje.es.
