Rhythm in their blood

Playing music seems to be a passion of the Schosers of Burladingen. No less than five Schosers are members of the local music ensemble. Katrin and Melanie play the bassoon, Heike the flute and Frank and Elmar blow the horn. Elmar has also taken responsibilities as the official ‘minute taker’ in the board of the ensemble.
In total, the ensemble consists of 124 active musicians (on 1 January 2008) who thus help to keep up the long-standing tradition of the ensemble which goes back to the mid 19th century. Next on the agenda is their concert at the St. Fidelis parish festival in Burladingen on 20 September 2009.

Where the name has no street

Surely, you would expect to find somewhere in the world a street having 'Schoser' in its name. However, it seems this is not quite yet the case. Forbach in France hosts a 'rue Schoeser' which sometimes seems to be misspelled as 'rue Schoser'. Anyway, judging from the satellite picture, this street isn't really the Champs Elysées. It is 500m long and appears to be squeezed in between a football ground and an industrial site. Schosers would seem to deserve a better treatment...
