Associação Recreativa de Nossa Senhora de Fátima do Arco de São Jorge
The Associação Recreativa de Nossa Senhora de Fátima do Arco de São Jorge was founded on October 13, 1933 by Silvano Abreu Cardoso, also its first Artistic Director. Until the seventies, the collectivity was called the Banda Escola de Nossa Senhora de Fátima.
This philharmonic is heiress of the Grupo Musical de Nossa Senhora de Fátima, group of instruments of vane existing in the parish since 1929, of which Mr. Silvano was founder and artistic animator. This group encouraged not only the festive religious chapels (with special emphasis on São José Day, patron saint of the parish, Christmas and Easter), but also, in the summer, the liturgical festivals of the parish – São José and the Blessed Sacrament.
