Bill Demmers

William Demmers volunteered for the NAMM Foundation’s Museum of Making Music for over ten years. During that time he provided tours as a trained docent to guests of all ages. His own background in music was fascinating. As a teenager Bill played trumpet in a traveling big band in the Mid West, played bugle as a service man during World War II and the Korean War and at one point also played the double bell euphonium. His volunteer efforts for NAMM also include dedicating hundreds of hours to the Resource Center where he worked on, among other projects, the Oral History collection.
