The Landwehr, its history and its prestige at the service of both music and Fribourg
The Landwehr is the official concert and marching band of the canton and the city of Fribourg and its ambassador throughout the world. It gives dignity and grandeur to formal and historical events and enthuses audiences in the most prestigious halls. With a remarkable history starting in 1804, this world-class orchestra is constantly expanding new musical horizons. Whether travelling overseas or marching in the streets of Fribourg, the Landwehr plays every single note of its repertoire with emotion. And, in order to ensure that this can continue, it trains the musicians of tomorrow in its music school.
