When founding LADIESORCHESTRA SALOME, Bettina Erchinger, the orchestra's leader, chose an unconventional line up: As a pocket sized big band with 3 saxes, rhythm section and vocals, the orchestra offers a wide range of styles from the warm sounds of swing to rocking soul. The versatile musicians and our lead singer, who also plays solo trumpet, guarantee original and varied arrangements. The musicians are without exception successful graduates of various music conservatories and universities and have won many prizes and awards (eg. National competitions for Song/Keyboard Instruments/Woodwind and international scholarships)
