Welcome Gregor!

Thank you Rachael! Welcome Gregor!

After our wonderful baritone player Rachael Moorhead told us last summer that she would be leaving the group to continue her career playing on cruise ships full time, we were pretty devastated and it was a tough time approaching for the ensemble, looking for a fourth player. There is nothing worse for a quartet than being a “trio”(!) playing mainly with deps. Finally in December 2013 we had the idea to ask Gregor Böhmerle from Stuttgart to join us for a trial rehearsal. So we met in January and for everyone it was crystal clear: this is it! He is an outstanding player and person and fits into Sirocco like he’s been here for years. The first project with him was our CD recording La Danza in May 2014 and this summer we all went on tour to the dutch islands and as we expected it: Sirocco is complete again 😀

We warmly welcome Gregor (alias Georgess) to our group and are very happy that he brings his musical knowledge and his fabulous quirky character to the group.

We also want to thank Rachael for all her efforts during her 7 years with Sirocco, for the time we spent together and all the fantastic concerts we played from 2006-2013 – we absolutely loved having Rachael in the group for so long!
