Sensational weather, sensational concert!
Not only was the weather sensational on the 30th of June, but also our annual summer concert!
Under the bright sun our spectators and listeners experienced a musical climax. Once again, Martin has managed to get the best out of us.
But before we could start, the "Ladies Of Brass" tuned in the audience. Last year, they celebrated their premiere and therefore could not miss this time. New was a group of children, the "Brother Jakob Band". The children have just started to learn their instrument and played "Brother Jakob" in spite of immense excitement already so great that Martin let it play a second time.
During the remodeling, the first chairman, Alexander Melchert, welcomed the numerous visitors and expressed their gratitude that they could not resist listening to the tropical temperatures. Also thanks to the numerous helpers for the creation of various shady places by tents and umbrellas, as well as the food and drinks.
Afterwards, Martin Woodford led the audience through a colorful mix of songs whose titles include a name and narrated interesting background stories. Among others, "Song for Guy" by Elton John. Here Hanna shone on the piano and Max, Maxi, Alex and Lena on the Flugelhorns and made for a very gentle sound.
Again and again, the individual registers were allowed to prove their skills in solos. Particularly impressive were the flying fingers of the clarinets in the pop song "Cotton Eye Joe". A great achievement! The Saxes peppered the rhythm to "Rock me Amadeus" and Doris on the trombone delivered a great solo with "Woody's Boogie". Even the younger players were not afraid. Already at the Christmas concert Fabian and Josefine were allowed to play solos. This should be repeated on "Woody's Boogie".
We practiced for half a year and the day flew by. Woody's Sound delivered a remarkable performance in the light of the weather and played without a break. You can tip your hat for that...
Now is summer break and we will take the newly gained energy into the second half of the year. Exciting things await us. It goes to England and in December there is again an Advent concert in the Winsener Marien - Kirche and the big Christmas concert in the Stadthalle.
We look forward to welcoming you there again.
