Each symphonic wind orchestra embodies and represents the community to which it belongs and from which it has grown. The SJBO is both the business card and the flagship of the Allgäu-Schwäbischer Musikbund e.V. (ASM). The orchestra is made up of highly talented young musicians who are selected from the Swabian music bands.

The SJBO is an enrichment for the ASM and the entire Swabian cultural landscape. Since its foundation in 1988, performances as well as the program have become more demanding over the years. For example, the orchestra played at the opening of Munich Airport in 1992 and at Pope John Paul II's 80th birthday in Rome. In the meantime, over 5,000 young musicians have "passed through the orchestra." Many of them have even turned music into their profession. They often pass on their experiences to the currently active musicians of the orchestra.

On September 8, 2024, 70 young musicians will sit on the stage at the Wolfgang-Eychmüller-Haus in Vöhringen and deliver an impressive concert program. The musical direction is in the hands of chief conductor Dr. Verena Mösenbichler-Bryant, who took over the direction of the orchestra from Toni Scholl at the beginning of 2020. She will lead the ambitious young musicians to musical excellence again. During the one-week rehearsal phase before the concert date, the orchestra will work on an impressive program at the Volksmusikakademie that is on par with any comparison in terms of level.

The highlight of the concert in the "Year of the Tuba" (2024) will be Gary D. Ziek's "Concerto for Tuba and Wind Ensemble," in which guest soloist Florian Hatzelmann will shine. Hatzelmann is the principal tubist at the renowned Zurich Opera House and is known not only in the region around Vöhringen, where he was born, as an exceptional tubist. He began his musical career in the local music association and already made a name for himself as a soloist at the age of 14. After graduating from the vocational school for music with Peter Seitz, he studied from 2011 to 2016 at the Zurich University of the Arts with Prof. Anne Jelle Visser. In 2013 and 2014, he was a tubist in the orchestra of the internationally renowned "Schleswig Holstein Music Festival." In 2013, Florian Hatzelmann was an intern at the "Berner Symphony Orchestra" and in the same year won the academy position in the "Herbert von Karajan Foundation" with the "Berlin Philharmonic." In addition, he is a substitute in renowned orchestras like the "Munich Philharmonic," the "Gstaad Festival Orchestra," the "Aachen Symphony Orchestra," and in many other genres and groups, such as "Alpenblech" and "Fättes Blech." Florian Hatzelmann became the principal tubist at the "Lower Saxony State Orchestra Braunschweig" in 2016 and moved to the same position at the "Zurich Opera House" in 2018.
