Brass Band

The Brass Band is a versatile group that characterizes Kevelaer's community life like no other.

Music enthusiasts of all ages come together under conductor Elmar Lehnen to rehearse various pieces and perform them on concerts and fairs.

Their repertoire includes not only classic marches but also arrangements of famous melodies from the movies and pop-culture of the past and present.

The Brass Band is can't be missed at the annual city fair as well as the carnival and St. Martin's parades. It also regularly performs outside of the city's borders, for example at the great tattoo* in Xanten.

Last but not least it organizes an annual easter concert together with the Junior Brass Band, where they show off their more unusual pieces.


*Disclaimer: this is actually what it's called, I looked it up!

The Brass Band is always looking for new members. Additionally to the possibility to learn an instrument form one of our teachers, we'd like to draw your attention to our new Brass Class where we can offer children the opportunity to learn playing different instruments and in a band in an in-depth course.

Naturally we also welcome those who already know how to play an instrument.

Should you be interested, please feel free to contact us.
