The orchestra was founded in 1983 with the goal of presenting popular German entertainment music. The name “Mielenforst” describes a forest in Germany that forms a border between the city of Cologne and the hilly region called “Bergisches Land”. It also happens to be the musicians’ home. The orchestra’s musical possibilities are as broad as its repertoire: from 1-hour concerts to 6-hour folk-music dance evenings; maritime programmes; wine-festivals and Octoberfests with Polka music (with the orchestra in traditional folk costumes). Summer concerts are also a speciality of “Uwe Brandt and his Mielenforster Musikanten”.
Beside trumpets, clarinets, horns, drums, and saxophones, accordions help to produce the Mielenforster Musikanten’s special sound. Our vocalists and concert presentations come inclusive of our own PA system and are part of the entire program.
Aside from four recordings, numerous TV appearances, and two concert tours in the U.S.A., the Mielenforster Musikanten play regularly in various concert halls and festivals throughout the year. These concerts occur usually on weekends, since all the musicians have different lines of work, remaining loyal to the orchestra because of their love of music.
Band Leader is Uwe Brandt: trumpet player, composer, and librettist. He is also the composer of numerous songs in the programme.
