Asociacin Amigos de la Msica de Yecla



In 1974, with the enthusiasm of what would be its first president and promoter, Luís Chirlaque Milla, and together with a group of musicians and friends, the Associació d?Amics de la Música (Friends of Music Association) was born. It has released several CDs. Those which they have produced themselves are ?Consumatum Est? and the ?Aires de Yecla? collection. This band promotes and organises the ?Festes de la Mare de Déu? Composition Contest. It has won a variety of awards in different band competitions, including two Special Mentions for Best Band of the Region of Murcia at this city?s national competition, as well as Second Place at the Concorso Internazionale Flicorno d?Oro in Italy in 2009, in addition to various First Place awards at other national competitions. Also worth noting is our association?s organisation and hosting of the 1st Congrés Nacional de Directors de Banda (1st National Conference of Band Conductors), which took place in our town in November 2008.
