Musikkapelle Neukirchen/Lambach

The „Trachtenmusikkapelle“ Neukirchen near Lambach was founded in 1890.
Currently the band consists of 72 active male and female musicians, the youth band has 25 members.

Since 1967 the band has taken part at concert contests without interruption and since 1976 also the marching contest has been an annual event.
From 1984 up to now a show programme has regularly been practised and offered to the audience.


The motto of Trachtenmusikkapelle Neukirchen

Music delights the active musicians as well as the audience. Conservation of tradition and strengthening of modern music is a goal of musical development.

The spectrum of activities is decisive – church as well as worldly celebrations have the same importance as concerts or various contests.
Quality is the result from the work of local female and male musicians – no artificial improvement by external support.

Solid development and connection among the generations is a main principle: Since World War II there have only been 4 chairmen, 4 Kapellmeister and 3 Stabführer (they all came from their own village)

Current Leadingteam

Obmann: Markus Achleitner (since 2001)
Kapellmeister: Kapellmeister Christian Weixlbaumer (since 2003)
Stabführer: Gebhard Stoiber (since 2006)
