We are the music association Kurorchester Oberlaa and we come from Vienna-Oberlaa. Oberlaa is a woderful wine-growing place at the southern edge of Vienna. Our orchestra was founded in March 1976. Currently it contains 60 musicians – all semi-pro musicians – at the age of 9 - 70 years. Since September 2012 the orchestra is lead by Johannes Hoffmann. The musical education of our orchestra's children and youth is very important for our association. In the frame of the orchestra they have the possibility to learn how to play a wind instrument and give concerts with our children's orchestra. For this reason, we do have a lot of children and youth as members of the orchestra.
It came into beeing in 1958 on the initiative of the then management of the Chemical Company “Stilon”. Since 1992 the orchestra has been acting in the City Cultural Centre. The Town Hall in Gorzów Wlkp. patronizes the orchestra. For the last 16 years, Mr. Bolesław Malicki has been managing the group. He graduated the Academy of Music in Wrocław and is the former band-master of military orchestras. There are teachers, old boys and students from schools of music, and musicians of the former Garrison Orchestra, in the orchestra. The Band gives concerts for the society of Gorzów within the region and abroad. The Wind Orchestra Gorzów plays successfully transcriptions of serious, film, folk, march and world popular and jazz music.
