If you live in Weil am Rhein, you might know them: Bonds Big Band is a project of Städtische Sing- und Musikschule. The ensemble was founded in 2010 by saxophonist and clarinetist Christian Leitherer.
At that time, it started with seven children, from whom he developed a dynamic ensemble over the years, which quickly became an important and integral part of the cultural life of the 3-Country-City of Weil am Rhein and was also able to establish itself in the region.
Today, about 40 children, teenagers and young adults aged 11-24 play in two formations. More and more young people are joining the band, so that currently decisions are pending to found a third formation.
Concert tours to San Sebastian, Prague, Munich, Berlin, Leipzig and Milan as well as projects with instructors of SWR Bigband, composition commissions and cooperations with instrumentalists and singers shaped the history of the ensemble.
