The “new” members of the musikverein deliver a convincing premiere

The

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.

With the straw bar on the chain

With the straw bar on the chain

The geisfeld carnival procession is considered a legend – and a real show on wheels and pigeons. For real stories to be told, meticulous preparation is needed beforehand. And that costs more time than the whole event.

Searching for people, finding themes, organizing vehicles, building floats: so that the geisfeld carnival procession can present itself as a time-honored mix of local history, current village gossip and global news, a lot of extra shifts are required beforehand. The weekend before carnival tuesday traditionally sees the start of the rough construction finale: under the supervision and access of the organizing cultural village community, various groups get together in various courtyards – an epic tinkering marathon is on the cards until the last slogans are painted and the short event on the street is over.

The bar tap dances

Even with the hand-tied straw bar, the material must first be brought to the man: the favorite project of the geisfeld carnival procession demands maximum patience from the exhibitor even beforehand. During the packing process into carefully cut straw, three quarters of an hour of keeping still is ordered – and after that, wild behavior in a prickly uncomfortable outfit.

Limmersdorf: “ronny” steals the show from everyone

Limmersdorf: 'ronny' steals the show from everyone

And also the church st. John the baptist, which was consecrated in 1540, was not the focus of the photographers’ attention. Ram "ronny" stole the show.

Weeks of work for the performance

The "heml, as he is known in the limmersdorf vernacular, had spent weeks with the neupert family for his rough appearance. He has learned to let people pet him and not to be shy. "Ronny" got to know loud noises, and learned to let himself be led. "But still, it’s all exciting for him today. Because up to now he knew only smaller groups of people", explains karsten neupert, who, to be on the safe side, is in front of "ronny" here ran. As a motivator.

Toni neupert and leonhard mejzini led the ram by the harness – a special honor. Nevertheless the buck had its own will. Sometimes he "wrapped his leaders around" and literally ate up the colorful wreath of flowers that was supposed to adorn it. Only by tying up the wreath did the owners manage to save the floral decoration at least until the procession was over.
