Our Bundinstrumentenorchester - B.I.O. for short - celebrated its 70th birthday in 2021! Founded in 1950, the orchestra today unites almost 50 players aged 12 to 84. Its demanding and varied repertoire includes music from the Baroque period to contemporary music, original compositions and arrangements, folk and art songs, folklore and Schlager.
The orchestra's special sound is based on the interplay of mandolins, mandolas, octave guitars and guitars as well as a bass. The B.I.O. participates regularly and very successfully in competitions and is, among other things, a prize-winner of the German Orchestra Competition.
Joint musical projects with our young musicians are also regularly initiated and realised.
You want to become a part of the B.I.O.? We are looking forward to meeting you.
