The New Holland Band

Located in New Holland, Pennsylvania surrounded by the rich farmland of eastern Lancaster County, the New Holland Band traces its history to 1829 when a group of musicians from town playing fifes and drums formed a band to provide music for the 51st Regiment of the Pennsylvania State Militia. The nation’s 2nd oldest community band served in the American Civil War as the regimental band for the 203rd Regiment of the Pennsylvania Volunteers and throughout its storied history appears in print archives under names including the New Holland Village Band, the Patriotic Order Sons of America Band, the Citizens Band of New Holland, and the Victory Band of New Holland.

 

With a legacy of mentoring young musicians begun by music director Samuel O. Zimmerman and continued through the leadership of Marlin Houck and Dr. Kenneth Laudermilch, members of the New Holland Band have filled the ranks of our nation’s top military bands as well as holding positions in symphony and opera orchestras. 

 

Newly appointed director Fred Hughes joined the New Holland Band while a junior-high school student, playing tuba alongside his father and performing solos with the band. He is a product of the band’s dedication to mentoring young musicians and is now enjoying a professional career with extensive experience in the band, orchestra, and jazz world. He will continue the legacy of the band begun in 1829 and is committed to serving New Holland and the region for years to come.
