The Musikkapelle Obermarkersdorf came into being in 1921 at the voluntary fire brigade. Currently it has 50 band members. The well known Viennese director of music prof. Karl Zaruba composed a march especially for this orchestra – the “Gruß aus Obermarkersdorf” (Greetings z Obermarkersdorf) and dedicated it to this band. The orchestra can be proud of various recordings – amongst other music pieces also this march. Every year with success it takes part in marching and concert competitions. The band´s speciality is playing marching music combined with an artistic parade. The Musikkapelle Obermarkersdorf plays a broad repertoire containing modern and classical music as well as film and musical music. The orchestra already played various concerts in Austria and abroad.
