The Coordinator of Federated Musical Societies of the city of Valencia (COSOMUVAL) was born in 1983 at the initiative of six musical entities of the city. It is currently made up of 27 societies that bring together a total of 2,200 active musicians. In its music schools, musical education is given to more than 4,300 students and around 300 professionals are employed. In addition, these companies bring together more than 12,500 partners.

But musical societies are not only made up of music bands, most of them have a Youth Band, Choral Ensemble, Chamber Groups, Jazz Ensembles, etc., and some of them even have a Symphony Orchestra.

During the years 2008 and 2009, and coinciding with the 25th birthday of its foundation, the Coordinator promoted several events such as the Band Fair in the Jardines de Viveros, or the 25th Anniversary Commemorative Concert, which took place in the Palau de la Music of Valencia, by the Symphonic Band of the Coordinator, made up of musicians from all the musical societies of the city and directed by Onofre Díez Monzó.

Likewise, thanks to the Palau de la Música and in collaboration with the regional delegation of the FSMCV, it has launched the Ciutat de Valencia Symphony Band, a group made up of musicians from musical societies in the city, which has offered concerts in the Palau Gardens and, on October 18, at the Teatro Principal.

Since December 2011 its president is Miguel Hernández Ferrer.
