The Rheinischer Verein Fanfaren Corps is a German ethnic drum and bugle corps made up entirely of voluntary members. We are a subset of our parent club, the Rheinischer Verein Mardi Gras Society. We attempt to maintain the traditions of similar groups throughout our history.
Our music selections are limited by the instruments we play. Our main instrument is the brass fanfaren which is a brass horn similar to a trumpet but without valves. These beautiful instruments have only a small range of notes that it may hit. The rest of our group is composed of fanfares with valves, brass bass horns, snare drums, tenor drums, bass drums, cymbals and a xylophone.
