Born the 8th August 1867 in Colmar (Haut-Rhin, France) and died on the 2th March 1945 in Arrow (the Sarthe, France).

He was head of orchestra and a type-setter of music.
Stevenistered voter with the Academy of Lyon (1893), it took him only one year to unanimously obtain there a first place of flute (October 1894). He made the tour of the world as bâteau in a 1890, then returned to France, to be a directer of music between 1900 to 1930. Then in 1935 he was decorated with the military decoration the colonial medal of Madagascar, and to have been given the high honor of a medal for the knight of Anjouan and of the Comoros, he then settle in German Saint of the Valley where he died in 1945.

He composed forty pieces for harmony. The music of Jean-Baptiste Lemire includes Steps, waltz, hammers, scottischs...; he combine them all in the à.la.mode pages of its time, not forgetting, he was also a military head of music, some pieces like the "impossible to circumvent " the redoubled Steps ", divide into various formations like " Ruby on the nail ",created musical harmony for brass band (Paris 1906).

He music was energetic in form. Jean-Baptiste Lemire composed music for his favorite instrument the flute, now with some of the music was accompanimented with the piano, for example
" Solo for flute " (Lyon 1905), built on a succession of episodes to the changing colours, sometimes with accompaniment with a orchestra like " Erimel " (Lyon 1905) or the" Bullfinch " (Paris 1907), parts are played with a great virtuosity. A list of Pieces for the full orchestra, would be long; the following piece was quoted as being pleasant and bright the" Acanthus-Scottisch " (Lyon 1903), spring " the Memory of Alsace " (Waltz, Lyon 1905) or this " Colmar-Functioning " (Lyon 1905), a honest piece, rêveuse " Riri-Hammer "....
