About The Band

Our History

The Liederkranz German Band was originally founded by Jeff Westfall as the "Liederkranz Brass Band" in 2014. Since its inception, the band has established itself as one of the premier musical ensembles for authentic German culture in Indianapolis.

From Bock season to Weihnachtssaison (Christmas season), the Liederkranz German Band plays at some of the best German-American celebrations across central Indiana. The Liederkranz German Band is an all-volunteer ensemble and is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. 

About The Indianapolis Liederkranz

During the 1800’s, German immigrants wanted to preserve their culture in their new country. Many of them formed societies based on common interest, one of which was singing.

For 150 years, the Indianapolis Liederkranz has continued to preserve this part of German culture in the Holy Cross area of Indianapolis.

The purpose of the Indianapolis Liederkranz is the cultivation and perpetuation of German culture, primarily through song and music, as well as the cultivation and promotion of other cultural activities for its members and the community at large.

All events are open to the public, including our rehearsals.
