In addition to our own series of concerts given at the "Glocke" Concert Hall in Bremen (where we present
four programmes per year) we are periodically on the road to give guest performances - within Germany and the
European neighbourhood. Please see Events for further information.
In addition to giving concerts we have found it to be an interesting challenge to enrich various public and private
social, business and political events with a relaxed acoustic ambience, an artistic touch as well as our special
and classy coffee house allure by playing our music there.
For some time we have been offering "sing-along concerts that invite you and your guests - or even a whole
concert hall - to sing along with the orchestra. Folk songs and songs from the olden or not so olden days - we will
be happy to guide your guests in any pitch that is easy to master.
Since 1995 the Bremer Kaffeehaus-Orchester has been recording music that represents the "state of the art"
of coffee house music current at the time. This music is available on CDs (for instance here in the
Shop) and as
downloads offered by iTunes and other providers. And we are thrilled to see that it keeps making new friends all
over the world.
tailored to your need
Order your own compositions and arrangements: Our own arranging and composing experience enables us to arrange music of
every type on demand - or to even compose something new - in a way that makes them become modern and distinctive music
matching the occasion as desired.
For instance a striking opening fanfare, a company hymn, even a complete opera (*) - or an instrumental version of that
unforgettable song to which you looked deeply into your partner's eyes for the very first time...
(*) of course in collaboration with professional texters.
of all kinds enrich and extend the work of the five men in tails. The spectre ranges from the Berlin Comedian Harmonists
and the Bremen Musical Theatre, the Viennese musical storyteller Marko Simsa and the writer Elke Heidenreich to the
Kontrapunkt Music Theatre of Düsseldorf and the integrative art project Blaumeier-Atelier Bremen, in collaboration with
which the BREMER KAFFEEHAUS-ORCHESTER put the opera "Carmen" on stage with huge success.
Furthermore we have enjoyed working with the Bremer Kinder- und Jugendkantorei (Bremen Children's and Teen Choir) and its
enterprising director, Ilka Hoppe, for several years. In addition to various musical fairy tale shows we were able to
realise the historical anti-fascist musical play "The Red Reporters", the "Threepenny Opera",
Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" in between Mendelssohn and German pop music revue in cooperation
with her. As well as "La Bohème or a Life for School???", a veritable self-composed vampire opera for children
freely adapted from Puccini.
