Lier Janitsjar is a concert band from Lier municipality in Buskerud county, Norway. The band consists of 25 musicians who have a lot of fun together playing brass, woodwinds and percussion instruments. On the band’s repertoire are popular music, classical pieces, music written for concert bands and marches. Sometimes, during the summer months, the band is out marching and entertaining in the streets, like on Norway’s constitution day, the 17th of May. Lier Janitsjar was established in 1931, and celebrated its 85th years anniversary in 2016.
We are practicing every Monday from 19:00 to 21:30 at “Lier kulturscene” in Lierbyen.
The band’s conductor is Mr. Atle Sønstebø. He is flutist by profession and works as teacher in a music school.
