Fanfare de la Verrerie was founded in 1916 by Mr. Henri Cornaz, director of the Glasswork Company of St. Prex (Canton de Vaud, Switzerland). At this time, this was for social purposes and most of the musicians were recruited from the factory workers.
In the 1980s, under the direction of Pierre Röthlisberger, the ensemble's staff grew and the musical level increased.
Today, the Fanfare de la Verrerie is conducted by Mrs. Sooa Chung and evolve in Brass Band's 2nd division. Our ensemble is composed exclusively of brass and percussion instruments. Our ranks are always ready to welcome new musicians.
The main concern of our band is the formation of future musicians to guarantee the next generation. If you are interested in playing music, you can visit the Music School page.
