Germering - How do you sum up 20 years of the Symphonic Wind Orchestra (SBO) in one concert?

By letting the members of the orchestra make a selection of their favorite pieces and then play them.

Corona-related even twice.

Actually, they wanted to celebrate the anniversary on a larger scale - namely together with the town band and the brass band of the volunteer fire brigade. Even if the corona virus initially torpedoed this venture, they want to stick to this plan for the coming year. So you should mark September 30th to October 2nd in the calendar, as chairwoman Kerstin Gottschling explains.


The concert started with an element of surprise.

Only a few musicians appeared on the actual stage in the Orlando hall of the town hall, the majority played down on the visitors from the balcony.

A song was played that should be well known to music lovers among the Germeringers: it was the house's fanfare.

A piece that the conductor of the main orchestra, Rick Peperkamp, ​​composed in 2019 for the 25th anniversary of the town hall and that has been played by the brass ensemble of the SBO "Symphonic Brass" since then.


25-piece youth orchestra

Then there was a change on the stage. It was the turn of the youth orchestra under the direction of Florian Kruse. The 25-strong orchestra delighted the audience with four pieces. Whether flute, oboe, saxophone, trombone or horn, the 28-year-old Kruse has the 10 to 16-year-old musicians perfectly under control. With their eyes on him - or the notes, of course - they played “Silver Creek Valley” or “Klezmania”.


Immediately afterwards, the 60-strong main orchestra stepped onto the stage, quite imposingly.

Here, too, was rummaged deep in the song box.

The applause of the audience is hard to keep up with pieces like the symphony no. 1 from “The Lord of the Rings” or the “Selection” from the “West Side Story”, it can only be increased by the appropriate conclusion with “ Robin Hood's "Prince of Thieves".

This is a piece, as the orchestra's board of directors describes it, which has been included in the program over and over again over the past 20 years - entirely to the delight of the horn players, as it is sometimes ironically said, after all, they have to work hard on the piece.
