The Basilica Orchestra is one of the only two parish orchestras in the whole diocese of Münster and consists of ladies and gentlemen who are playing string and wind instruments. The orchestra is usually accompanying the choirs during choir and orchestra masses.
To conserve this tradition, which is already extinct in many other places, puts a high demand on the musical amateurs in the orchestra which they are fulfilling with laudable commitment.
Orchestral church music, classic or contemporary, is usually delivered by professional musicians.
Because of that the Basilica Orchestra tries to strike a balance between compositional quality and realizability in its repertoire.
