Though the current pavilion in Place d'Armes has only stood since 1933, there has been a bandstand in the square since 1875, hosting performances by brass and woodwind ensembles, jazz and classical outfits, big bands and other ambient music. Thus, there is a long-standing tradition of events – and concerts in particular – in Place d'Armes. In the mid-19th century, military concerts were regularly being held in the square. Today, a widely varied cast of musicians perform for the pleasure of audiences sitting on the many terraces bathed in the shade of the large plane trees that line the square.
