The Musical Band of the Philharmonic is comprised today of 120 active members, who, apart from the public appearances, also perform 5 to 6 concerts each year, often with the cooperation of worthy Greek artists. Since 2001, the Music Band operates alongside with the Students’ band with the participation of 60 children aged under 17 years, who during the duration of the school year, have the opportunity to present work samples based on the constant and systematic teaching of music.
