TRUMPET
1930s La Valette Band Club

IL-BANDA

Though military instruments were already commonly seen on the streets during the time of the Order of St John, the British period saw an explosion of interest in wind and brass bands, the establishment of the first Maltese bands, and the necessity of outlets in Valletta specialising in the sale of brass instruments.

The exhibition will be leading you through this exciting band development and the new influx of instruments throughout the mid-nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
