About the Organization:
The original New Holland Band, consisting of fifes and drums, was formed in 1829 as part of a regional militia unit. In 1856, the band was organized under the direction of Isaac Witwer as the Earl Infantry Band, and was reorganized for Civil War field duty in 1864 as the 203rd Regimental Band of the Pennsylvania Volunteers.
The mission of the New Holland Band is to preserve, maintain and advance its historical tradition of providing live performance of the highest quality band literature performed at a consistently professional level. The membership of the band includes professional andnon-professional musicians along with college and high school student musicians.
