Musikkapelle Leavenworth, the Bavarian Village
town band, began in 1996 under the direction of Chris Shimer. The band
performs at all major Leavenworth festivals and activities in addition to
out-of-town appearances. It is typical of town bands of Bavaria.
consists of over one hundred arrangements from Germany and marches, waltzes
and polkas typical of Bavaria. Like German village bands, members of
Musikkapelle Leavenworth come from a wide area.
