‚Trio Van d’Arc’ records for the cd “ruby soul” with the soul-band tok tok tok

since 3/02 Juggling meets Violin with juggler Stefan Zimmermann; two varieté acts - ‚Ball-Bolero’ and ‚Tango-Diabolo’; 
Daidogai World Cup Shizuoka/ Japan, TV-produkcion NDR Thüringen, Kulturbörse Freiburg 2002, award '1. Kleinkunstpreis der Stadt Koblenz', festival 'Kleines Fest im Großen Garten' Hannover, Open-Air-Varieté Freiburg, 'Autosalon' Geneva, Opernball Frankfurt, Industrie Fair Endress & Hauser Hannover, IGA Rostock a.o.

since 5/03 ersatzlos gestrichen - improvising string ensemble founded by violinist Harald Kimmig; present line up: Harald kimmig, Emma Mc Clune, Sylvia Oelkrug – violin; Henrike Ross, Hennes Vollmer – violoncello; 
In the first place improvisation was just means to gain a wider approach in playing. But that's changing under the impact of Harald Kimmigs's impressive, strong and individual musicianship, and - as well - due to the inspiration of the mlticolour timbres of ‚ersatzlos gestrichen’. At first everything seems to be easy - then it turns into serious work, since clichés are all about... - a time to discover musical structures, the rules of interplay, your own restricted mind....

soloviolinist for ‚Meditation’ (Jules Massenet), conducted by Michael Vollhardt/ Ortenau-Orchester

muscial encounter with Mike Keneally - fascinated lidtener during concerts in Germany and Amsterdam, then playing a common session at the 'Waldsee Freiburg'

Sylvia Oelkrug im Palazzo Colombino

Pardon? - varieté show – that's challenging?? Yes it is! Provided the bandleader is Schroeder and the artistic director Stefan Schönfeld. Then it's

a sophisticated program - risky business in times
a real band, where nobody's calling a sub just because of 40°c fever
Continous developement of ideas, increasing demands, constantly-changing program.... and a lot of reason to reconsider the own attitude towards music... 
furthermore performances with:

33 1/3 h improv festival Padova – one rock-jazz-fusion-impro-festival 33 1/3 h non stop in honour of the 'good ole vinyl lp', performed by musicians from Italy, USA, Germany a.o.
33 1/3 non stop playing (with just a few snippets of sleep inside the car), playing, and playing some more - with such a variety of musicians - you're slowly entering a state that seems to extinguish all the familiar licks and patterns - otherwise you can't go on. A great experience and a ball to fumble with the distorsion pedal... - what a pity to miss the 45!
jazz clinic lead by Didier Lockwood at CMDL in Dammarie-Lés Lys

Sylvia Oelkrug, Geigerin

After Didier Lockwood's concert at the 'Waldsee Freiburg' it was obvious: "I gotta go there!".
Again, gates to new wolds open up - and the universe seems even more endless. This unique jazz violinist isn't "just" a real musician, but a wonderful severe, meticulous teacher, as well. He's twisting one or the other traditional technique - and he knows why. The ball is rolling....
