La Fanfare de l'Île
La Fanfare de l’Île was formed in April 2020, the product of our shared passion for traditional jazz and an urgent need to play and share music amidst the pandemic. The roving format is perfect for maintaining physical distance, and it’s also a core element of the marching-band format.
We are well-established Montreal musicians who dedicate our summers to our new marching band, bringing our music to every part of the city. Our goal was to lighten the mood of the first lockdown and adapt living art to our new reality with brass, percussion and trumpets.
