The spa orchestra
Sounding messengers of Bad Füssing
Every week they bring joy into the hearts of hundreds of spa guests with their music: The musicians of Bad Füssing’s spa orchestra.
By this time, Bad Füssing's spa orchestra is as much a part of Bad Füssing as the thermal springs and the legendary curative water. Their concerts are part of the daily routine of many visitors, where they can regenerate while enjoying the music, dream and simply feel well. In its over four decades of existence, the spa orchestra evolved to a real institution of Bad Füssing. The first concert took place on May the 1st in 1967.
As of 2004, for the first time ever, a woman, named Anna Fuhrländer, is the ensemble's vanguard. In this position, she not only contributes her artistic and concertante knowledge, but also her Hungarian temperament.
The orchestra is brilliantly skilled at attuning to different music genres and at always being open to new things. Time and time again, with its high professionalism, it can create entertainment on a high level. Surely this is also a reason, why the spa orchestra is equally favoured by guests and locals nowadays.
A musical journey from Mozart to musicals
No other Bavarian spa resort offers so much high-class spa music to its guests as Bad Füssing does. For lots of guests, the spa concerts given by the 14 musicians (coming from England, Poland, Romania, Hungary and the Ukraine) are a fixed component of their recreation and health program in Bad Füssing. Even lots of locals take the concerts as a welcome opportunity to get out of their everyday life for a little while and gain new energy.
The spa orchestra tries to offer something for every taste of music: with compositions from operas, operettas and classics - for example Mozart and Haydn, to modern melodies like for example Gershwin or well-known hits from the musical “Jesus Christ Superstar”. Especially popular with the spa guests is the request concert on Wednesday evenings, where visitors decide what pieces of music are played.
