The Centre Artístico Musical de Xàbia (CAM) kicked off its festive events to honour its patron saint Santa Cecilia with one of the most emotional act; the collection of new musicians who become part of their groups.

This year there are eleven young people who join the entity between the Band and the Orchestra.
The band section takes on Joan Salort Cholbi (percussion), Joan Fernández Galán (percussion), Lidia Tur Bolufer (percussion), Batiste Bisquert Arabí (trumpet), Joan Buigues Pineda (trumpet), Inés Ginestar Giner (clarinet) and Marc Bisquert Figols ( trombone) while the orchestra section is reinforced with Carla García Caselles (viola), Marc Antonaía Tent (viola), Marta Ramos Fornet (bassoon), Constanza Guillem Bergillos (viola) and Mari Carmen Buigues Yuste (piano).

The band paraded through the historic centre on Sunday to collect the new additions from their homes as well as the new muse, who this year is Sofía Chorro Mas.

This act kicks off the official program which includes three concerts from the three groups of CAM Xàbia.
