Music & Art

interdisciplinary project

“Art painting makes people feel different emotions through the colours and figures. Music intensifies these forms of feeling through the different sounds and nuances.”

As a saxophonist, Sonja is always working together with different artists and art disciplines to present new art forms.

For this purpose, different concert formats are developed again and again.

Here is a small insight into the last project together with the artist Udo Hohenberger.

SAGS Quartet

Saxophon Quartet

The name from the quartet derives from the German word “sags”, which means “say it”. It is a symbol of their mission, to communicate with the audience through music.

The saxophone quartet “SAGS” is made up of the four young South Tyroleans Sonja Wallnöfer, Greta Franzelin, Sonja Oberkofler and Alex Designori.  
Their repertoire includes original works as well as arrangements in the field of classical and contemporary music, which reflect the various tonal facets of the saxophone.

Sonja Wallnöfer – Soprano Saxophone
Greta Franzelin – Alto Saxophone
Alex Designori – Tenor Saxophone
Sonja Oberkofler – Baritone Saxophone


The town musicians of bremen

music theater for children

The town musicians of Bremen is a german popular fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm. It tells the story of aging domestic animals, who are tired after a lifetime of hard work, mistreated by their masters and decide to run away from home.
On their path they meet each other and walk together to the city of Bremen to become town musicians. During their way the animals experience some exciting adventures.

Beppie Schalken (trombone), who was the initiator to make a dutch music theater of this fairytale, called Sonja and Femke Vrencken (flute) on board to work along with her. The Town Musicians of Bremen (in dutch “De Bremer Stadsmuzikanten) was made voor young children to get in touch with classical music and get to know the different instruments (flute, saxophone, trombone).

The trio won in 2017 the Junior Grachtenfestival Pitch and performed the theater since then on several festivals like Grachtenfestival, Festival Oranjewoud, Festival Theater Boulevard, Festival Classique as also in primary schools.
