Grazer BläserVielharmoniE (Wind Orchestra)

“Music is the only universal language which needs no translation. With it soul speaks to soul.” The Grazer BläserVielharmoniE bases its activities on this quotation of Berthold Auerbach. The Grazer BläserVielharmoniE is the wind symphony orchestra of the universities and universities of applied sciences of Graz.

The association founded in 1994 offers amateur musicians and aspiring young conductors at the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz the opportunity to hone their skills and demonstrate them in concerts and music competitions. The focus of this orchestra is not only on the perfect choice of pieces or precise rehearsals, but also on musicality and the enjoyment of making music together with high musical standards. The sense of collaboration and community are also among the values cherished by the orchestra.

Katrin Waldenhofer, Member of the Graz BläserVielharmoniE

After hearing a summer concert of the Grazer BläserVielharmoniE in 2015, I was certain: I wanted to join.
I have already made a lot of valuable friends, I have learnt a great deal and improved my skills on the saxophone. In particular the wide-ranging programme, the passion for music shared by the many members, and the sense of community within the orchestra make me glad to be part of the Grazer BläserVielharmoniE.
