In 1975, the fanfare ensemble ‘Union de Buizingen’ was amongst the first Belgian groups to convert to a traditional British-style Brass Band instrumentation. Since that time, the band has played a remarkable role in the world of the Belgian ‘HaFaBra’ (Harmonie, Fanfare and Brass Bands), both at home and abroad. Amongst the most striking moments of its history are included remarkable concert presentations and contest performances, numerous CD releases and, in 1997 the singular honour of being designated ‘Cultural Ambassador of Flanders’. A musical ensemble wishing to remain in the front rank of quality and to ensure its own longevity must be constantly looking forward, striving to achieve an organisation, a musicality and a disciplined team-spirit leading to the highest standards possible. This website is an integral part of that vision and hopes to provide an accurate and faithful image of the Brass Band Buizingen.
