Militärmusik Niederösterreich

Lieutenant Colonel Adolf Obendrauf, Conductor.

The band is headquartered in St. Pölten, capital of the federal state of Lower Austria. It was founded in 1957, but its historical roots date back to the 18th century, when the 49th and 84th Imperial and Royal infantry regiments were established. The band accompanies various military ceremonies and cooperates with renowned artists of Austria.

The musical band plays a large number of concerts, taking part in more than 200 events every year. All around the world Vienna is associated with waltz melodies. Needless to say, the Military Band of Lower Austria also performs this genre. Aside from classical Viennese music, the band’s repertoire embraces traditional and military music of the Austro-Hungarian Empire along with compositions by modern musicians for wind ensembles.

The band also engages in educational activity, acting as a comprehensive educational center for musicians, teachers and conductors. This year the band celebrates its 60th anniversary.
