In 2005, seven young musicians at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna joined together to compose a fresh take on traditional Austrian brass-band music. The imaginative sound of the seven-piece ensemble is hard to fit into a single genre. Folk, world, pop and a splash of humor come together to create a tone as curious and charming as the ensemble’s name—Federspiel, a Germanic surname that translates to “feather game.” Join the band as they tour the U.S. and enjoy Austrian-theme food, drink and entertainment.
