"Traditional European Wind Band Music"

Our Director is originally from Geesthact/Elbe, Germany.

Andreas was the director of community bands in Geesthact for four years.  In 1988 he received a
Conductor's Diploma for Concert Bands
which enabled him to conduct bands professionally.

He moved to Richmond, Virginia in August 1991 and found that there was no community band in the area that regularly performed Traditional European he formed the band by inviting musicians that he met in the area to play.  The group performs regularly throughout the Central Virginia area.  The music library owned by our director is extensive and the repetoire consists of traditional waltzes, polkas, and marches from Germany, Austria, Poland, and Czechoslovakia as well as music from the rest of Europe.  Also included in the library are arrangements of many "standards" of the twentieth century.
