HMD Korea Tour 2018

This summer 2018, we have been invited to participate at the prestigious Jeju International Wind Ensemble Festival. We will be the first band from Luxembourg to have the honor to perform at the 23rd edition of the Festival.  

Jeju, an island located in the southernmost tip of Korea, is commonly known as "The Island of Peace" with its clean air, water, and the wonderful landscapes. Jeju International Wind Ensemble Festival (JIWEF) is one of the major art festivals of Jeju, harmonized with the peaceful image of the island, the romanticism of summer, and the characteristic of wind music which is easy to perform outdoors.
