In the district of bad kissingen, 68 music clubs belong to the north bavarian music association. The average age is 26.3 years, a pleasingly low figure, explained werner hohn. He is the district chairman and vice president of the north bavarian music association. The age group of the over 50s, on the other hand, was less well represented.
"It is good that we have so many musicians in our ranks, especially with a view to the future, hohn is convinced. District youth director johannes geiling also made it clear at the meeting of the north bavarian music association that the bad kissingen district youth wind orchestra (KJBO) is the mainstay of the district youth organization. 51 participants between the ages of 14 and 28 from 26 clubs learned about concert wind music here. The KJBO is also an "educational orchestra" for the clubs. In 2013, the 20-year anniversary of the KJBO will be celebrated in addition to the 20-year anniversary of the northern bavarian brass band youth.
Geiling adds that they try to appeal to the youth by offering recreational activities and by integrating them into the community. "You have to get young people interested in music as early as possible. Good youth work is the be-all and end-all in the association." He is satisfied with the situation for young musicians. But we must not rest on our laurels, we must continue to work. This is the only way to ensure the future supply of young musicians. At the moment, we are in a very good position in this area.
