HEAROES in Concert on November 18

The Freiburg Wind Orchestra in concert at the Konzerthaus Freiburg. Conducted by Stefan Grefig.

Heroes and heroines represent physical strength, courage, ingenuity, strength of character, benevolence, righteousness, speed, gentleness, defiance of death and superhumanity. They invite admiration, breathless marvel and excitement. They go by names like Spartacus, David, Princess Leia, James Bond or Batman. Composers including Wagner, Melillo and Williams revered them, and have transformed their stories into musical form.

For one evening only, the Freiburg Wind Orchestra, conducted by Stefan Grefig, will bring heroes from literature, cinema, opera and history from antiquity to the present day boldly and musically to life. Prof. Dr. Thomas Seedorf from the University of Freiburg’s Collaborative Research Centre 948 “Heroes – Heroizations – Heroisms” will set the scene.

For over 30 years, the Freiburg Wind Orchestra has been delighting its fans with symphonic concerts and projects of the highest caliber. The 60 aspiring musicians who make up this amateur ensemble hail from Freiburg and the surrounding area. The Orchestra regularly performs at open-air events around the city, and often invites well-known musicians to join them on stage.
