The Symphonic Wind Orchestra Tyrol was founded in 2016 and, despite its short creative period, is now one of the most outstanding wind orchestras in Austria and Europe. The 80 musicians come from all parts of the country and from South Tyrol and are mostly music students. After the orchestra already shone at the 1st National Wind Orchestra Competition of the highest division in 2019 in Grafenegg with 95 points, the Tyroleans achieved a remarkable result on the international stage at the World Music Contest 2022 in Kerkrade (WMC) with 93.50 points in the 1st division. Driven by the passion to cultivate significant works of contemporary wind music in the highest quality, up to 3 projects are realised per year. After a performance in the Congress Innsbruck/Saal Tirol, where among others the 7th Symphony by David Maslanka could be heard, the SBT is already looking forward to two special church concerts in December 2023, where besides The Frozen Cathedral by John Mackey or Liberation by David Maslanka, Tiento del primer tono y batalle imperial by Cristóbal Halffter will be heard in the cathedrals of Innsbruck and Brixen. 

Bernhard Schlögl lives in Ampass near Innsbruck. He attended the municipal music school in Hall in Tyrol at the age of 6 and learned to play the accordion there for 12 years, later also the euphonium and trombone. After his final music school exams, prizes at Prima la musica and the grammar school with a focus on music in Innsbruck, he studied for a concert diploma in trombone at the Tyrolean State Conservatory. After completing his military service with the Tyrolean military band, he directed a private music school and was able to gain valuable experience in various national orchestras. Back at the Tyrolean State Conservatory, he studied wind orchestra conducting with Prof. Hermann Pallhuber and Prof. Thomas Ludescher, which he successfully completed after 6 semesters and examination concerts with the Saxon Wind Philharmonic Orchestra as well as 2 further semesters with a focus on chamber music and the examination concert with the Brass Band Tyrol. Bernhard also studied music and instrumental pedagogy in the main artistic subjects of singing, trombone and conducting at the Mozarteum University in Salzburg. He attended the course for international jurors at the Federal Academy in Trossingen and studied conducting with Jan Cober, José R. Pascual-Vilaplana, Thomas Clamor, Thomas Doss, Isabelle Ruf-Weber, Rolf Schumacher, Francoise Pierre Descamps and others.
Bernhard Schlögl is a music and instrumental teacher in Innsbruck, since 2019 Artistic Director of the Innsbruck Promenade Concerts, conductor and sought-after lecturer as well as adjudicator in Austria and abroad. He is also a member of the newly founded ÖBV network of jurors.
As a conductor, he leads the Symphonic Wind Orchestra Tyrol (since 2016), the Select Orchestra of the North Bavarian Music Association (until 2023) and the Stadtmusik Hall in Tyrol (since 2022). His special highlights as a conductor include successful competition participations with the Symphonic Wind Orchestra Tyrol, among others at the Austrian Wind Orchestra Competition for selection orchestras of the highest level (95 points), at the World Music Contest (WMC) in Kerkrade (1st division, 93.50 points) as well as a guest conducting with the world-famous United States Marine Band.
