Summer 2019 – News

New for Spring Summer 2019

The orchestra had their first rehearsal at a new location and with a new conductor on Monday, 4th Feburary. After a lot of searching, the Einstein Kulturzentrum in Haidhausen were able to offer us a fabulous rehearsal space for our Monday evening rehearsals. Johanna Malangré, our new conductor, put the musicians through their paces with the Hebrides Overture, Gli Aranci Olezzano from Cavallaria Rusticana, and Gershwin’s Summertime, which they will perform together with the Singers and some of the Big Band musicians.

The Singers met up a week earlier and were introduced to Linda Oppermann, their new conductor for the Spring Summer season. Having had to leave our former rehearsal venue, the Singers join the Big Band at the KreativGarage, Ackermannbogen, where they are slightly squished in – but at least they have a space to rehearse (and get to know each other better!). The local pizza parlour proved a popular after-rehearsal location and we are sure will be well frequented this season!

The Big Band already started rehearsing in January, the only ensemble this year with no change in rehearsal location and still with their former-member conductor, Davy Kazan. With further jazz vocal ensemble pieces being added to their repertoire, the Big Band are preparing for performances at many venues throughout the Summer – we will keep you posted!
