Here’s a little more about the history of Orff from Sonor:
Welcome to the World of Orff
Many years of experience, along with our passion for innovation and quality, have made these instruments an essential component of classrooms around the world – and have made SONOR the global market leader. It all started in 1875 with a small drumhead workshop in Weißenfels an der Saale, Germany. Founded by the lathe turner and whittawer, Johannes Link, a flourishing business grew out of modest beginnings. By the turn of the century, an extensive variety of percussion instruments were being manufactured by the Link
Carl Orff and Gunild Keetman developed the OrffSchulwerk method in the late 1940’s. Their unique approach to elementary music and movement started to gain more popularity mainly due to the broadcasting of ”Schulwerk programs“ on Bavarian radio. The Links’ foresight, along with their passion and vision for expanding the range of products, provided the inspiration for the development of SONOR Orff Instruments which were officially included in the production range in 1953.
This was the beginning of a new era. The Links pioneered continuing musical education from which groundbreaking didactical concepts originated, and they invested heavily in R&D which produced much technological advancement. Such as the sound bar material used in Palisono products or the invention of chime bars.
Chime bars, for example, offer many educational possibilities for therapy and group lessons. They play an important role in musical language therapy for the hearing impaired, as auditory potential can be activated through the exceptional vibration characteristics of the Sub Contra and Contra Bass Bars.
At Sonor, we are proud of our long history and are indebted to the entrepreneurial spirit of the Link family. The close and continuing collaboration with pedagogues and therapists, who support our seminars and are involved in product development, is the basis for our practice-oriented focus today.
We strive to honor SONOR’s reputation for tradition, innovation, quality and service. Most importantly, we aspire to create instruments that live up to your expectations, support your work in the best possible way and …
to give you music-making pleasure!
