On 29 November 2013, the 10th Military Research Hospital and Polyclinic, Independent Public Healthcare Centre, Bydgoszcz was a venue for a performance by a French Military Band of Versailles, who played for patients and staff. The concert was also attended by Col Charles Sevin from the Joint Force Training Centre in Bydgoszcz.
The band played instrumental pieces, focusing on two areas: classical French music and their own arrangements of pop music. The concert turned out to be a great success, with huge applause at the end, no empty seats, and encores played on request.
The French Military Band of Versailles, led by bandmaster Maj Philippe Kesmaecker, is the biggest band in the French Army. Each of the musicians is a remarkable performer, and we were honoured to be able to listen to them play live at our hospital.
