On August 19, with about 200 guests, Vauban Health Centre at Saarlouis celebrated their 10th anniversary. Dr Carsten Schürfeld had invited the SZO to accompany by musical offerings the festivities on the roof terrace of the health centre.
On June 20th at the Saarland Radio the Saarland Plucked Strings Orchestra (SZO) recorded two more works of their present programme. They recorded the “Concert for saxophone and plucked strings orchestra” (soloist: Michael Bick), composed by Helmut Fackler especially for the SZO, and “The City Awakens” by Emiel Stöpler.
From February 10 –12 intensive rehearsals took place in the state music academy Ottweiler, to which Helmut Fackler, former conductor of the SZO, was invited, too.
All the best for 2017 from the SZO!
