Arts & Theater
Hermann is home to a vibrant community of working artists who find inspiration in the ever-changing beauty of Missouri Wine Country. These local artists create a wide variety of work, ranging from paintings, music, photography, sculpture, illustrations, and more. Many Hermann venues feature live performances, and many display, and sell, local and more distant works of art. Art and Theater events are listed on our Events Calendar.
HERMANN ARTS COUNCIL
Founded in 1979, the Hermann Arts Council serves as an advisory body to the City of Hermann. The Council hosts First Friday Art Walks on the first Friday of many months throughout the year. The Council also sponsors guest musicians, as well as many events for children and adults.
HERMANN CITY BAND
Reflecting the historical importance of music to the community, Hermann has a thriving city-funded band. Made up of over 40 local musicians, ranging from talented high school students to professional musicians, the city band brings the community together to listen to traditional band music, patriotic songs, and marches. In addition, the director usually selects a piece or two to surprise the audience and challenge the musicians. The City Band performs on Memorial Day weekend, the Fourth of July, and the first Sunday in August. Performances are at the Clara Eitmann Messmer Amphitheater. In case of inclement weather, performances move to the Hermann High School Auditorium.
