Last Saturday, the 7th Gala de la Música Vega Baja y Baix Vinalopó was held in Orihuela. This event was organised by the Federación de Sociedades Musicales de la Comunidad Valenciana (FSMCV).
Each of the 13 musical societies attending, presented diplomas to chosen members for their outstanding contributions to music.
La Sociedad Unión Musical de Bigastro presented their diplomas to D. Joaquín Grau Murcia, Lieutenant Colonel Director of the Military Music School in Spain and to D. Joaquín Sáez Belmonte, a musician in the band who has recently finished his higher level studies for the saxophone.
After the presentations, the participants retired to another room for a meal where they held a raffle for various prizes.
