Młodzieżowa Orkiestra Dęta Miejskiego Domu Kultury w Czechowicach-Dziedzicach (Poland)
Młodzieżowa Orkiestra Dęta Miejskiego Domu Kultury w Czechowicach-Dziedzicach was founded in 2005 in the frame of the City Culture House. It keeps alive the tradition of the former Wind Orchestra of the Voluntary Fire Brigade in Ligota. Besides a lot of awards, since 2001 the orchestra sucessfully takes part in the Wind Orchestras' Festival „Złota Trąbka” (Golden Trumpet) gaining bronze, silver and golden diplomas in the categories show, concert and Grand Prix.
The Youth Wind Band adds splendour not only to Polish events, but played concerts also abroad (France, Italy, Czech Republic) at festivals and carneval (Verona) together with its Czech partner „Dixi Majorettes”. Another important undertaking was the joint concert with Jacek Stachurski for the Polish tv channel TVN. The orchestra is one of the best wind orchestras of voluntary fire brigades in Poland – in 2014 it gained the 8th place in the ranking. Currently it is led by Tomasz Janusz, the grandchild of the orchestra's founder Edwarda Janusz.
