Wegner Chairs

The right chair makes a difference

Much like wearing correctly fitting shoes for walking, sitting in the proper chair is vital for musicians. Correct posture improves a musician's performance and is especially important for student musicians.  Orchestra chairs duplicate the natural standing position for better posture and greater breath support. 

The construction of the chair makes it difficult for the musician to slouch, yet remain comfortable so it's easy to concentrate on mechanics and performance. The chairs for cellists are specially designed to slant slightly forward to promote proper posture.

The standard folding chairs that are currently used work against their musicianship.  Consequently, the music department would like to purchase a full set of stackable orchestral chairs for concerts in the high school auditorium.  Chair racks would also be purchased to efficiently store and transport the new chairs.

A complete set of 70 Wenger Nota chairs, 10 cello chairs, and 4 racks costs $10,552.00.
