The 40 musicians and the two talented young soloists of the Fraunberg Community Orchestra started their anniversary year with a two-hour concert at Rauch in Grucking: The club is 20 years old this year.

Fraunberg/Grucking – Over the past two decades, the orchestra has continually developed and made a name for itself far beyond the district borders.

Conductor Ute Auf dem Hövel, who has led the orchestra for twelve years, said: “I have slowly tightened the screws for increasingly demanding works.” As a result, the performances have always been unique.

There will be further anniversary concerts on September 29th in the Gasthaus Strasser in Oberbierbach and on December 13th in the Fraunberger Bürgersaal, announced cultural officer Anni Gfirtner and said: “At the beginning, no one thought that the orchestra would develop into a crowd puller and thus for the community ensures a great cultural external impact.”

Club chairman Christian Korn welcomed 150 visitors to the first birthday concert.

And that at Rauch, where the foundation for the success story was laid when it was founded in 2004.

Korn's thanks went to his predecessor Christoph Spranger, to Gfirtner, who still looks after the club's fortunes to this day, and to the community for their great support.

“But without all the musicians and you concert-goers, such a development of an amateur orchestra whose focus is on symphonies and symphonic works from the classical and romantic periods would not have been possible,” said Korn.

At the start, the orchestra shone with the “Coriolan” Overture Op.

62 by Ludwig van Beethoven.

The second piece, “Symphony in E flat major Op.11 No.3” by Johann Stamitz, was one of the first works played by the orchestra under its first conductor Helmut Ellebrecht, to whom the article was dedicated.

Antonio Vivaldi's Violin Concerto in A minor featured major performances by the young soloists in question, who have only been playing for two years.

After the orchestra's perfect performance of "Allegro", eleven-year-old Jakob Tongson from Hohenpolding shone in the second part, "Largo", and the third part, "Presto", thrilled the nine-year-old Shirley Jian from Taufkirchen.

“You did a really great job,” praised Auf dem Hövel, and the audience thanked them with a big round of applause.

After a break, the orchestra immediately returned to top form - with the overture to the opera “Iphigenie in Aulis” by Christoph Willibald Gluck and the “L'Arlesienne Suite No.

2” by Georges Bizet.

At the end: a standing ovation and the encore “Farandole” by Bizet.

Orsolga Herczeg and her partner Uwe Gunthner from Velden, who had come because of their work colleague - Anna Bayer plays in the orchestra - were enthusiastic about the atmosphere.

Andrea and Ralf Heislmeier from Pesenlern found it very varied: “It was exciting to see how young soloists can assert themselves.

It’s a great amateur orchestra that works well together.”

The community's cultural committee invited people to the Reichenkirchner parish hall on December 14, 2003 to found the community orchestra.

Chairman Gfirtner explained at the time: “We want to accommodate everyone, whether young or old, with a lot or little experience.

It should be an orchestra with an independent concept that not only covers the musical area, but should also enrich exhibitions, vernissages and so on.

The orchestra is intended to be a cultural meeting point and will certainly reflect the color of the community.

Because in order to form a sound body with the many different instruments, you have to have your own way.” In the end, 30 music friends agreed to play along.

After its founding, the first spring concert took place in March 2004 in the full Gasthaus Stulberger under the direction of Ellebrecht.

After Ellebrecht's health-related retirement in 2012, the Wartenberg resident took over Auf dem Hövel.
