Fuchsthone Orchestra

The nomination of the FUCHSTHONE ORCHESTRA for the German Jazz Award in the category "Large Ensemble of the Year" 2021 was a clear signal in the middle of the pandemic to the two bandleaders Christina Fuchs and Caroline Thon and their 20-piece Large Ensemble. Undeterred, they realized the ongoing concert series "FUCHSTHONE reloaded #2 and #3" in Cologne's Stadtgarten. Together with the ensemble, the composers continue to modulate their repertoire there in a constant process; this year Reloaded #4 and #5 will follow. The role of electronics in the ensemble and in the compositions has been sharpened, while at the same time the fantastically cast orchestra continues to grow together musically with each concert. In June 2022 they will record the results of their work so far in the broadcasting hall of DLF Cologne for their first release on ENJA Records. One can and may be curious!

The FUCHSTHONE ORCHESTRA unites 22 outstanding and multiple award-winning musicians from Cologne and stands for a current, orchestral sound that goes beyond previous genre boundaries and takes the listener on a spectacular sound journey. The two composers Christina Fuchs and Caroline Thon have long been leading exponents of contemporary, large-scale jazz and have over two decades of experience leading large orchestras (United Women's Orchestra, Thoneline Orchestra, Soundscapes Orchestra).
