The FUCHSTHONE ORCHESTRA consists of more than 20 outstanding musicians.Together they pursue the goal of establishing a contemporary orchestral sound that points beyond previous listening habits, musical styles and boundaries, taking its listeners on a spectacular soundscape journey.

Even the lineup is different from traditional big bands. The jazz ensemble has a female co-leadership: in addition to leading and conducting the orchestra, Christina Fuchs and Caroline Thon are also in charge of the compositions for FUCHSTHONE.
The two musicians have long stood for a modern and unconventional style. An essential part of their compositions is the use of electronics, noisy sound generators and computer samples. Eva Pöpplein is a sound artist who has a longstanding reputation in this field. And of course the two FUCHSTHONE leaders have put together the ORCHESTRA with great care. A team that can master the challenges of their complex arrangements with ease: Jens Düppe, for example, one of the most respected drummers of the German jazz scene… or the outstanding saxophonist Roger Hanschel… as well as the warm, great voice of Filippa Gojo, who crowns everything… just to mention a few names of this brilliant ensemble.

More than 20 musicians, many of whom have won awards and are long-standing members of the jazz scene, make up this masterful body of sound that takes you to new places in an inspiring way – that’s FUCHSTHONE ORCHESTRA!

FUCHSTHONE ORCHESTRA nominert für den deutschen Jazzpreis 2021

Nominated for the German Jazz Award 2021 as “Large Ensemble of the Year””

Newly appeared and already nominated for the German Jazz Award!
Even if it didn’t work out with the award in 2021, the nomination itself was already a great success for the team of the FUCHSTHONE ORCHESTRA. In the pandemic year 2021, it was also a positive recognition of the enormous effort that a 22-piece orchestra requires.
