Stadtkapelle Rottweil

The Stadtkapelle Rottweil is the brass band ambassador of the oldest city in Baden-Württemberg, an idyllic district town on the Neckar River between the Black Forest and the Swabian Alb.

The orchestra currently consists of 72 musicians, ranging in age from 14 to 80. Youth work is a special concern of the Stadtkapelle Rottweil. Starting in the wind school, the children and young people are trained in their instruments. Afterwards, they make music in the Rottweil youth band, which currently has 70 young musicians. The Stadtkapelle Rottweil organizes joint concerts and activities together with the Jugendkapelle, so that the cohesion between the generations is a special feature of the orchestra. The helpful and good togetherness also characterizes the community.

Due to the excellent work of Johannes Nikol, the Stadtkapelle as well as the Jugendkapelle Rottweil is always developing and taking on new challenges. The many concerts in the year are always very diversified. Besides the symphonic concertante brass music, the traditional brass music is not neglected. In addition, every year there is a "Fasnetskonzert", which is organized by the youth and city band of Rottweil, which is a success due to the great performance of the musicians.
