We are a highly motivated youth wind orchestra with over 50 young members that has been giving kids and teenagers the opportunity to share the love for music for over 50 years now. But to assure our future existence we need financial support to replace aging instruments.
Since our foundation 50 years ago have we been offering kids and teenagers an opportunity to play an instrument and further supporting them to share our enthusiasm for music. It all started out with a small community band that started out with about 20 members only from the local town. But over the years our orchestra has steadily increased in size and also attracted members to join from further away. Today we count 50 members from the age of 12 to 22 living in different towns all over the region of Bern coming to rehearsal once a week. We are led by our proficient director Martin Schranz who graduated with a degree in wind orchestra conducting. Each semester he puts together a nice but challenging set of pieces which we perform on several occasions; namely our Christmas and May concerts along with interregional competitions which we take part in.
It is our matter of concern to create an environment for kids and teenagers where they can get engaged in music and share their passion with same minded to push each other to play even better.
For that we are still capable of offering kids the right environment to train their musical skills and perform at a high standard we are reliant on your support.
