Bandleader Marc with Laura granting her a young musician's award
The Town Band is not only an important part of village community-life, but over the years has developed into being an essential representative of the village - whether it be the summer concerts,
official occasions (such as the Europa Forum), the traditional winter concert or as musical ambassador to Lech`s partner resorts.
To satisfy these extensive responsibilities it is vital for us, as with any other association, to regularly recruit younger generations.
Playing music not only brings musicians together but is also a meaningful and fun use of leisure. When playing within a group the musician is required to HEAR, THINK, SEE and manipulate an instrument at the same time. Hardly any other activity occupies this many senses simultaneously.

their free time.
The town band is striving to capture young people´s interest in brass band music. These days modern brass band compositions offer such a variety which cater for all musical tastes and preferences, as well as providing a sound challenge to improve musical abilities.
