Concert band Crescendo is the musical ear catcher of Ermelo. Annual events are the New Year’s Concert and Spring Concert. In addition, Crescendo is very creative in developing new concert formulas, like the Maestro Concerts. During these events, well known residents of Ermelo took up the baton and competed in a conducting competition, under close watch of a very critical jury panel. In October 2017, the first edition of a live karaoke evening will take place. Every person in Ermelo that has the ambition to sing in public accompanied by a full orchestra is invited to do so.
