The Perfect Blend of Music and Fun

This season, the ESME orchestra has been working hard for the upcoming winter concert at Schloss Nymphenburg. Under the direction of award-winning conductor, Johanna Malangré, the orchestra will be performing an exciting program including, among other pieces, Mendelssohn’s Reformation Symphony (Symphony No. 5) and Saint-Saens Cello Concerto No. 1 in A Minor, Op. 33. The orchestra has flourished under Johanna’s inspiring and entertaining conducting style, and her rehearsals are always filled with great music and great fun. On a recent all-day orchestra rehearsal, members brought along unique potluck dishes so that in-between making music, they shared in some food and fellowship. The day proved successful in providing not only a focused, productive time for rehearsing, but also a time for members to enjoy each other’s company!

Epic ESME Weekend Away

For this year’s ESME Fall Weekend Away, Haus Sudetenland in Walkreiburg was filled with smooth harmonies and good vibes, punctuated by stretches of raucous revelry. Over the weekend, Linda’s infectious laughter, positivity and clear guidance propelled the Singers through over 12 lively hours of rehearsals. Meanwhile, Lea, Chris and Niels were hard at work in their mini-strings sectional.

As so often happens at the ESME Weekends Away, the fun carried on in all the in-between moments and into the wee hours of the night! Led by inspired game master, Dang, teams collaborated to showcase their choreography, beat-boxing, lyricism and even an impressive Russian rendition of “Bear Necessities” from the Jungle Book. The creative team skits had everyone rolling with laughter and singing until they found their beds.
