So was the wine festival at the town hall square in forchheim

so was the wine festival at the town hall square in forchheim

"O cosmos greeks say to a place where something is going on, where you want to be to see and be seen. It may be due to the almost tropical temperatures that mediterranean images mix so easily with those of half-timbered facades at the wine festival of the forchheim-buckenhofen music society on the town hall square.

A piece far also the clothing of the visitors contributes to it. Even heiner kredel, tireless promoter of the music society, has left the professional dress code far behind: knee-length light trousers, a linen shirt and a straw hat. "I’m not a "traditional franconian", he says almost as an apology, although his style of dress exactly matches the atmosphere in forchheim’s "good parlor reflects.

Sudliche way of life at the forchheim wine festival

Even the timing fits into the picture of southern lifestyle. With every degree that the mercury level slides down again, more people come and settle down on the benches and at the bar tables. One comes, one goes, one makes a round through the city, the festive mood is carried far beyond the town hall square with the onset of darkness. A real volta – and that in the middle of forchheim. The frenchman as flaneur? It goes together.

Geisfeld in a celebratory mood

Geisfeld in a celebratory mood

It was the last day of midsummer, with a brilliant blue sky and high temperatures, when the people of geisfeld collected their church consecration tree from the entrance to the village, accompanied by the marching music of the geisfeld musicians, and set it up in the square opposite the church. Under the expert direction of wolfgang linsner, the mannerists skilfully hoisted the 28 meter long spruce from the mosten part of the forest into the air and received powerful applause from the many spectators for their work.

Then everyone moved to the old dorfstrabe, where the cultural village community of geisfeld (KDG) under its chairwoman nicole dusel and the DJK sports club under its chairwoman doris pflaum organized the kirchweih with tents, booths, in garages and outdoors. Since both geisfeld economies were not available, the villagers, under the direction of their two leaders, went to the matter themselves, love the differences because of the bypass road not even suggestive come up, proclaimed as at the olympic games in ancient greece truce and had success with it.

The kirchweih, which had been moved to the old village street for the first time, was also optimally presented here, because there was a really good atmosphere, which increased even more when mayor wolfgang desel (CSU) tapped the first barrel without a splash. Conductor konrad kalb and his musicians played the funny old kerwas songs and from everywhere the cheers for geisfeld and its kerwa resounded.

Reunion of two music clubs

Reunion of two music clubs

The music society and the obermaintaler youth band have common roots, which go back to a brass band founded in 1873. It may have been personal sensitivities that led to the breakup more than 40 years ago. Since 1971, there have been two independent wind music associations in ebensfeld.
But this should soon belong to the past. On friday, 29. June, the members are in demand: if 75 percent of the members present at the merger meeting decide in favor of a merger, there will only be one music association in ebensfeld in the future, the "musikvereinigung ebensfeld e". V."
Now, so close to the goal, the chairmen of both associations are optimistic. Why it came to the split at that time, nobody knows exactly anymore. "When we became big, there were already no more contact points", the chairman of the music association, rudolf dierauf, recalls during a press interview. "Both clubs rehearsed at the school on friday night, but separately in different rooms", adds otto weidner, press officer of the obermaintal youth band.
Now what has been separated for more than four decades is to come together. In seven committee meetings, the "reunification" was completed on the way. The structure of the board and the duration of the election period were also discussed, and a completely new constitution was drawn up in accordance with the current legal regulations.
The advantages of a merger are obvious, not only from a musical point of view. It also makes sense from a financial and organizational point of view to use synergy effects. There are also advantages in the area of youth work, because there are no longer enough young people for two independent brass bands due to the demographic development.

More diverse musical palette

in the adult section, with more musicians, a more diverse musical direction would have been possible. "Both orchestras will continue to exist, but will perform together", dierauf explains. As one of the few bands in the district of lichtenfels, the obermaintaler take part again and again in the performance competitions, the rating games of the north bavarian music federation. This would now also be possible for a larger number of members.
The musikverein currently has 339 members, the obermaintaler 284. After the merger, the "musikvereinigung ebensfeld" (ebensfeld music association) the second largest association in the market town and the largest music association in the county.
