A worthy start to the first Woodstock Academy week from May 22-29. August 2021 - the opening concert of the Original Woodstock Musicians!
20 seasoned musicians - long-time friends and colleagues - come together to form a band that takes on almost forgotten treasures of brass music. Wind music rarities, brought to life again. By combining completely unknown pieces and Egerländer hits, they create a program that playfully devotes itself to the purity and truthfulness of the wind music genre. Under the direction of Matthias Schorn - Woodmaster at the Woodstock of Brass Music 2019 - artists gather who have played a decisive role in shaping the "Woodstock of Brass Music" festival over the years, and in some cases even co-founded it. Their common concern is to present traditional works and original compositions - with the aforementioned main focus on the music of the Egerland musicians and the endeavor to breathe new life into forgotten polka, waltz or march delicacies.
