We are looking for a new conductor

After 15 years of successful working with our conductor Alexander Monsch, the Town Band Buchen is looking for a new musical director.

The town band has been an important cultural institution in the town of Buchen since its foundation in 1893. The association represents the town of Buchen through the design and framing of a multitude of secular and church events as well as official occasions. It offers a wide repertoire from traditional folk music to modern and symphonic brass music. We pay particular attention to the sound, professional training and promotion of our young musicians. At present, about 75 musicians play in the town band.

For our ambitious orchestra we are looking for one from September 2020:
