Concert Thorn

On Sunday 11 July,  the Limburgs Jeugd Symfonie Orkest performed during the opening concert of the Open Air Theater Thorn. Despite the short preparation time, the brass and woodwind ensemble were able to present a beautiful concert including the Serenade by Antonin Dvoƙák. A year later than planned, the concert took place with beautiful weather, a sold-out theater and an enthusiastic audience. Thanks to the Open Air Theater Thorn, Samuel our conductor and of course our musicians!
