OLVO-Band (Royal Youth Band of Holy Mary’s College Ostend) was founded in 1909 under the name La musique du Collège, but stopped its activities during the two world wars. The ensemble reformed in 1954, and made a name for itself under the leadership of Marcel Moerman between 1955 and 1989, appearing regularly in parades and performing both classical and contemporary music in Belgium and abroad. Since 2017 it has been led by Virginie Vantyghem, with around 70 members between the ages of 12 and 18. OLVO-Band comprises two groups: the orchestra, which consists of wind and percussion sections, and the “kliek”, which is made up of drums, clarions and hunting horns. In addition to its regular concerts, the ensemble organises trips abroad combining rehearsals, performances and sightseeing with sports and games. It has performed in numerous countries, including Austria, Switzerland, Italy, France, Germany, Slovenia, Spain, Croatia, Hungary and Sweden. At this year’s Ljubljana Festival the ensemble will be performing in several locations in the city centre, along the Ljubljanica River (Pleteršnikovo nabrežje and Zmajski most) and in a number of popular and picturesque Ljubljana squares (Pogačarjev, Prešernov, Dvorni and Stari).
