More than 600 listeners did not want to miss the season-opening weekend of the buckenhofen music society. The highlights were the appearances of the two "new" members of the board orchestra of the music society presented for the first time to a coarse audience of about 200 people at the kolpinghaus in forchheim.
In the first part of this unusual concert, the 35 musicians of the "klangfusion" wind orchestra, which was founded only a year and a half ago, proved that they were the right people for the job, that the mixture of former and new has very quickly matured into a homogeneous body of sound. Coached and conducted by budding professional musician elisabeth kircheis, the orchestra offered a well-dosed mix of classics such as frank sinatra's "my way", musical successes like "the beauty and the beast, rock legends like freddy mercury and marches like "mussinan, from the pen of the composer carl carl, born in forchheim in 1830.
Then came the hour of the adult wind class, which was launched in the fall of 2016, after more and more women and men had expressed the desire to learn an instrument at a later age. After the invitation to tender and a search phase lasting several weeks, the 15 participants originally hoped for turned out to be more than 50, who now gave an impressive presentation of their skills.
