The Horns of the Berliner Philharmoniker play for the football World Cup champions

11/11/2014

A sports appearance for the Horns of the Berliner Philharmoniker: On 10 November, Stefan Dohr, Fergus McWilliam, Sarah Willis and Klaus Wallendorf provided the musical entertainment at a ceremony at Schloss Bellevue where German President Joachim Gauck, in the presence of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, awarded the players of the German national football team the Silver Laurel Leaf. Before the football world champions, they played a virtuoso, witty medley by Klaus Wallendorf in which the German national anthem was symbolically interwoven with Samba and Bossa Nova motifs and the melody of the German celebratory song So ein Tag, so wunderschön wie heute, finishing with an enthusiastic cry of “goal”. The Silver Laurel Leaf is the highest state award presented by the President for sporting excellence in Germany.
