Announcing the Spring Showcase

You’re in for a treat at this year’s annual Spring Showcase, Sunday 19th May, 16:00 at Einstein-Kulturzentrum.   Let us melt your weekly worries away with an array of classical, pop and folk music performed by various small ensembles from our Singers, Orchestra and Resident Alien Big Band.  From choral pop classics and classical cello to folk and ukulele, there’s something for everyone–families welcome!

Tickets for our “Spring Showcase” are now on sale.
Add the event to your calendar, so you won’t forget.

Congratulations to our New Board

Back – Manuela Osinski (Treasurer), Annika Brockhaus (Secretary), Elaine Cole (Co-Chair),  Davy Kazan (Auditor), Alyssa Filardo (Concert Management – Artistic Director), Michael Von Glasow (IT); Front – Mette Holmark (Orchestra Manager), Sam Gelletly (Co-Chair) and Carina Little (Concert Management – Administrator); Not pictured – Sabine Gaumert (Auditor)

Greetings from the newly restructured board! Our goal with this new structure is to make the day to day running of our organization more sustainable and to better accommodate a group of our 160 plus member size. By bringing ensemble and concert teams to the board, and creating teams within each ensemble, we hope to spread the responsibilities and make contributing to our special musical club easier and more attractive.

We’re working on getting the changes,  which were voted in with a large majority at this year’s AGM, fully implemented, and very soon we will be putting workgroups together to help define processes both for the new board positions and for fair member treatment.

We look forward to making music with our members in the concerts and gigs to come in 2019 and especially to seeing our loyal newsletter readers and supporters in the audience!

Fresh Faces in the Lead

The ESME Orchestra and the ESME Singers both began the season with new conductors. Johanna Malangré has taken over the baton for the ESME orchestra, and Linda Oppermann is conducting the Singers for the Spring/Summer season 2019. Welcome to ESME!

ESME Spring Weekend Away May 9-11 2019

We are all looking forward to bringing the ensembles together for another music and fun-filled weekend at the Humboldt Institute in Bad Schussenried.  Along with our first joint rehearsals for the Summer Concert, the weekend is guaranteed to include impromptu jam sessions, laughter and llamas.

Resident Alien Big Band play Munich Unplugged

ESME’s Resident Alien Big Band are back at the Munich Unplugged Festival! Join them on May 24th from 8 to 10 PM at Platzl (near Hofbräuhaus). Bring your dancing shoes and smooth moves!

Open Positions in the Orchestra

At the moment the ESME orchestra are working on a broader orchestral sound. Therefore we are actively looking for some more string players. This season, the Orchestra rehearsals are at Einsteinkultur – the venue of the Spring Showcase. You’re interested in joining? Contact us via the introduction form.

Our Resident Aliens also need more support in the trumpet section. Can you jazz solo? Or perhaps you are not the jazz soloist/ jazz trained, but are a confident sight-reader with the ability to hit the high notes? Or do you have someone in mind who might fit one of those profiles? Then get in touch with the Band Leader, Davy Kazan via bigband@esme-ev.de
