Polizeiorchester Bayern

The Police Orchestra Bavaria based in the state capital Munich is the professional, symphonic wind orchestra of the Bavarian police.

It was founded on November 12, 1951 in Rebdorf near Eichstätt and can look back on eventful development with its 65-year history. From the original 30 police officers, over the decades a concertante wind band with 45 professional musicians has developed. The Police Orchestra Bavaria consists of 45 studied professional musicians from fourteen nations and sees itself as a link between the police and the citizens. Since 2006, the orchestra has been under the direction of the General Music Director of the Bavarian Police, Prof. Johann Mösenbichler. In the service of good causes, the Bavarian Police Orchestra plays up to 50 benefit concerts a year for social, charitable and cultural purposes throughout Bavaria. As part of these charity events, the orchestra works together with associations, foundations and cultural and tourist offices and has already raised annual benefit proceeds of over a quarter of a million on several occasions. Special references include the Munich Opera Festival, the World Saxophone Congress in Strasbourg, the German Music Festival and concerts in Berlin, Budapest and Brussels.
