The band was founded in April 1973 in the “VEB Halbleiterwerk Frankfurt (Oder)”. 120 active members between the age of 9 and 40-plus play music in our officially organized music ensemble. Besides the traditional marching music with natural trumpets as well as with different drums and percussion instruments, the orchestra impresses in its concert program of the upper and highest level with a varied repertoire ranging from classical and heraldic sounds of natural trumpets to samba and original compositions.
From the beginnings of simple songs without notes, the training has been carried out for many years according to notes in our own clubhouse, opened in 1997, by instructors of the Fanfare Guard. The musical director is Mr. Hans-Jörg Laurisch, deputy federal music director of the BDMV e.V.. As a member of the former District Music Corps Frankfurt (Oder), the orchestra took part in almost all major concerts with up to 25,000 musicians.
In 1990 the Fanfare Parade separated from the VEB Halbleiterwerk and founded the “Fanfare Guard Frankfurt a. d. Oder e.V.
Since then the ensemble has had many great concert tours and successes. The focus is always on international encounters as well as getting to know each other and making music together. Thus, Europe-wide relationships and friendships with various music associations have been established.
