The police officer has been involved almost from the beginning. To this day, the youth orchestra and music are part of his life. "Music is my favorite hobby", he says.

It is now almost 50 years since he first came into contact with the youth orchestra at the age of just under nine, i.E. Immediately after its foundation. His parents had recognized his musical talent, he recounts. Even today, he remembers his early days as a young musician exactly. He learned the trumpet in private lessons and was not integrated into the youth orchestra until 1965. Rehearsals and performances are part of club life. "I had stage fright before every event!" The camaraderie, the applause, the joy of music spurred him on to continue.

In the meantime, harald scherbel is getting on in years. And although he travels almost daily to his duty station in nurnberg, he is active as a musician. No longer in the youth orchestra, of course, but as a conductor and flugelhorn player with the kronacher musikanten.

He follows the developments in the youth orchestra with interest. "I can't help but drop in from time to time and get actively involved, as I am doing now with the preparations for the anniversary.
