  1. Mark your calendars, folks, ESME will perform again Dec. 9!  More details will follow!   Formerly known as the TT Orchestra and Singers, the English-Speaking Music Ensembles formed an Orchestra of 5 people at the end of 2008 and now have an orchestra of 45 people, a choir of 60 and a Big Band -- and we became an e.V. in 2011.   We usually play about 2 - 3 concerts a year. In 2010 we had our debut at the Gasteig. Yes, we're developing rapidly. But we're about *everyone* enjoying playing, no matter their standard or the last time they even looked at an instrument. We're also about having fun and enjoying a good social life! Rehearsals are all in English, and the Singers don't even need to know how to read music -- though you should be able to carry a tune...   We welcome new members at almost any time during the season. has current information on our open spots, and rehearsal times are at the bottom of that page.    Trombones for the Big Band? Double bass for the Orchestra? Tenors, basses for the Singers? Always welcome!
