Emil Mollenhauer
Stewart's Boston Concert Band

Born Aug. 4 1855 in New York City, his father and uncle are credited with establishing the conservatory system in America. He played with Theodore Thomas Orchestra, New York Philharmonic (Damrosch) and Boston Symphony. He was a violinist and pianist.

In 1904 he accepted leadership of the Boston Municipal Band (later known as the Boston Band) which played hundreds of performances from coast to coast. Herbert L. Clarke (Sousaís cornet soloist) and Ernest Williams at one time were members of the band. Mollenhauer died in 1927. He is well-known for his arrangements of difficult orchestral repertoire. His band played in Willow Grove only in 1911, a year when neither Sousa or Victor Herbertís organizations appeared.
