Montana's Original Symphony

I am the Butte Symphony

Chuck Kestle
A native of Butte, Chuck Kestle began playing the trombone at age 10 with a horn purchased by his father Charles who was the first principal trombonist with the Butte Symphony. Chuck joined the Symphony in 1992 and also plays with the Platinum Street Players and the Butte Big Band. He serves on many local boards including the Butte Community Concert Association and is a worship leader and trustee at Aldersgate United Methodist Church where he sings in the choir. When not performing music Chuck is a licensed Architect in partnership with his brother Jeff with the firm of Kestle Architects in Butte. He and his lovely and patient wife Vicki have been together forever for over 20 years.
