"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.
The repertoire 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."
