“The best memories”

Ulrike langer the audience in the well-attended parish church in obertheres gave a standing ovation to the traditional brass band of the obertheres music society and its conductor eduard marpoder for their concert "wind sounds in advent.

After the festive start with the nordic fanfare and hymn, which was written for the opening ceremony of the nordic ski championships in oberstdorf in the allgau region, the chairman of the association, thomas klopf, invited the visitors to close their eyes and to think back to how it used to be in the advent season or at christmas. "Perhaps you have memories of the glittering christmas tree balls in which the candles were reflected, and perhaps you have memories of a certain place scent that you still associate with the advent season. That's why we'll start by playing 'best memories' for you, a contemplative and quiet piece that will certainly help you remember your best memories.", he said. In the course of the concert, which was moderated by some musicians of the band, the musicians performed some beautiful compositions of christmas music. As many as 17 different melodies were heard, for example, in the potpourri "uberall ist weihnacht" ("christmas is everywhere"), and also the medley "the magic of christmas" presented various german, but also american christmas songs.
