Limburgs Jeugd Symfonie Orchestra Concerts

Following the decision of the Dutch government related to the Corona crisis, we are unfortunately forced to cancell the LJSO concert of Sunday 27 June in the Theresiakerk in Maastricht.
The concert in the Openluchttheater Thorn will take place on Sunday July 11.
We are pleased to announce that rehearsals have started on Sunday May 30, 2021.

Samuel Agustín Aguirre (1993) was born in the Colombian village of Bolívar where he developed his musical talents. In 2014 he started his training as a conductor with Jan Cober and since 2019 he also studies orchestral conducting with Sander Teepen. In 2016, Samuel performed as a solist with the South Netherlands Philharmonic in Limburg and Brabant. In 2005 - at the time oboist of Amikejo - he received the first André Rieu incentive price.

Niels Dauven has joined the Board of the Limburgs Jeugd Symfonie Orkest

'I do this based on the belief that music brings people together. Even though you may not speak the same language, the music speaks for itself and that really brings people together. I myself am not a musical high-flyer. I can enjoy the music, but I lack the musical talent. Still, I think I can make a valuable contribution to the board. Since I was 19, I have been active as a municipal councilor of Valkenburg aan de Geul, and I am experienced in participating in the boards of associations. I am someone who likes to organise and I always try to connect with other organisations because together we bring each other further, just like in an orchestra, actually, Together you create something beautiful, ' says Niels Dauven.

We wish Niels the best of luck! On behalf of the board, conductor and orchestra members.


Rehearsals for the summer concert of July 11 start on Sunday, May 30.
