Civilian marching bands in the province Värmland industrial communities : With a focus on Degerfors, Edsvalla, Gruvöns, Nors, Slottsbron, and Vålberg bands (English)
Abstract [en]

This bachelor thesis is about civilian marching bands in the province Värmland industrial communities, with a focus on Degerfors, Edsvalla, Gruvön, Nors, Slottsbron, and Vålberg bands. Degerfors, Gruvön, and Slottsbron bands are three corps that still operates concerts and performances. The other three unions are defunct.

In Värmland, there were many mills that were operating well into the 1900s, roughly speaking there were about 25 mills in various industrial areas. These mills had operations in glass, iron, and paper, each user had a band at least a brass sextet and today there are only eight bands left in Värmland. Bofors in Karlskoga, Charlottenberg, Degerfors, Dejefors, Gruvöns in Grums, Hagfors, Skoghall, and Slottsbron bands.

What is the reason that so many bands have disappeared? To answer the question I have investigated the importance of four factors have had for the unions: finance, recruitment collaboration with the music and arts, as well as cooperation with educational associations.

The results show a marked reduction in civil bands, from about 25 corps to eight corps today. Factors economy, recruiting, music and culture schools had a great importance and study associations only had a certain importance. Conclusion is if bands do not get financial support in order to conduct business, do not have interaction with music culture schools, because recruitment is done here today. Then it is a great risk that civilian bands are lost.
