Christmas – Kirchstetner musicians bring “Swinging Christmas” to Neulingbach

Immediately after the blessing of the community’s Advent wreath by Pastor Bogusław Jakovski, guests from Kirchstetten lit the first Neulingbach Advent highlight in the Lingenbach Hall: with a program from the last ninety years of American music history, “Big Band Theory” was welcomed. About 150 visitors were not allowed Heavy snowfall prevents them from looking forward to the upcoming festival. The Rotary Club of Neulingbach-Wienerwald provided a fundraising buffet for its projects, which, as President Martin Michalić explained, were essential for the care of disabled children and young people during the holidays, for the Lichtblickhof Children’s Home and for small projects.

First, the band, consisting of four saxophones, three trombones, four trumpets, keyboard, bass, and percussion, performed the logo in a diverse mix. The evening was led by Mrs. Elissa Lindell-Merheim, who enchanted the audience, and Mayor Jürgen Rummel welcomed the audience and the band and thanked the Rotary Club for the buffet. Then four Christmas songs were played: “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas”, “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town”, “Have You a Merry Little Christmas” and “Santa Baby”, one of the few Christmas songs he wrote that became woman. With “Big Spender” they turned to a different repertoire, and Lendl-Merheim provides an insight into the band’s history: Children begin training on their wind instrument at the Kirchstetten music school when they are only six to seven years old, and the director is Stefan Mandl. It has always been important to allow musicians to work together in a band from an early age. After earning their first badge, they enter the squad in traditional costume. In 2013 an attempt was made to create “2. Half” of the youth orchestra turned into a big band, enjoying much success and delight at summer concerts. Singer Lindell Merheim joined in 2016, and the band has been called “Big Band Theory” since 2019 and is available For all kinds of associations.Today, many musicians have studied their field and taken a professional path: trumpeters Stefan Mandl and Martin Petri as well as pianist Adi Rudakis work as music teachers, young saxophonist Kirsten Stolzlederer is conductor of the St. Pölten City Band, young trumpet player Christine Stolzlederer is conductor St. Pölten City Band.Director of the Wilhelmsburg School of Music, Lukas Reckenzein, played the role of saxophonist in the concert and contributed some virtuoso solos, and harpsichordist Lily Sanchez earns her living as a musician at the Vienna Volksoper. Together with younger and more experienced musicians they form a high-quality ensemble that It requires a conductor to achieve precise consistency in playing. The song “In the Mood”, which became a classic thanks to Glenn Miller, was followed by, among other things, hit songs about human relationships, and finally the Christmas theme returned with the song “Let it snow”. The program closed with “Driving Home for Christmas,” which Chris Rea was said to have composed in 1986 on his way home from the airport in heavy traffic, and Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” which has sold more than 16 million copies.

The audience applauded enthusiastically. The encore included a lively pop version of “Last Christmas” and “Felice Navidad” with audience participation and a wonderful piano solo. Many people stayed for a long time and talked about the nice impressions. One man said he had been invited by an acquaintance and was happy to watch such a professional performance.
