The Dorf Kapelle

Ernest Broeniman, artistic director 

The Dorf Kapelle (Village Band) of Sheboygan County, Wisconsin, performed for the first time in 1988 and has become known for its performances of traditional ethnic music of the German-speaking nations. Led by Ernest Broeniman, a retired music teacher and recognized authority on European wind music, Dorf Kapelle captures the folk style of a European village band with authentic vocals and the robust sound of brass and woodwind instruments. Dorf Kapelle was named one of the top five entertainers at German Fest Milwaukee and in 2008 was voted a cultural heritage award winner by the Wisconsin Polka Hall of Fame.
