Banda della Scuola Popolare di Musica di Testaccio

About us

We were born in 1977, in the heart of the popular neighborhood of Testaccio, at a time when there were only parochial bands, country or military. In our wake, over the years, they are also born many similar formations.

In our repertoire we support the South American rhythms in pieces by jazz music, pop music, "ethnic" and classic, along with original songs written specifically for this group, with an organic poised between that of a traditional band and that of a Great Orchestra.


Our director is Silverio Cortesi.

Our Band is more than just a music group: is an association organized on a democratic basis that continues to measure its interventions with constant civic engagement objectives, social and multicultural integration.
