Hamburg, Germany (2015) | Sponsorship of a Youth Orchestra
Marquard & Bahls Sponsors the "Coole ElbStreicher"
In 2015, Marquard & Bahls sponsored the “Coole ElbStreicher”, a non-commercial junior string orchestra from Hamburg, with 10,000 euros. The orchestra consists of some 50 children and teens aged between 5 and 18, who come together from different neighborhoods and social backgrounds to play music. Their repertoire, which they perform by heart, ranges from Abba to Apocalyptica, from Bach to the Beatles, and Vivaldi to Leonard Bernstein. At various concerts in and around Hamburg, they delight the audience with their unusually large age range and their love of playing together. The Coole ElbStreicher has already won the “Orchestrale” orchestra competition twice. Once a year, the orchestra gives a benefit concert whose proceeds go to fund selected children’s (music) projects.
