Spotlight on young talent


Strings festival | 21 nov

 2020 | Maastricht

Autumn concert | 22 nov 2020 | Kerkrade

Autumn concert | 29 nov 2020 | Maastricht



After an intensive and successful collaboration between the choir school Cantarella and the Limburg Youth Symphony Orchestra for the youth opera Brundibar, the two young parties have collaborated again for an online intiative. 'I offer you peace' by Jenkins is performed. Each singer and musician has recorded its own party from home. The above result has been created together; an ode to freedom, which is especially important in these difficult times. With 'I Offer You Peace' we bring a message of hope and connection.

LJSO musicians play Ode to Freude

On Sunday 22 March LJSO musicians participated en masse with many German and Dutch musicians to play the European National Anthem together and thus support all people in this difficult Corona crisis time. Thank you very much to our musicians!

Limburg Youth Symphony Orchestra concerts of 24 may and 7 june canceled

Following the decision of the Dutch government of March 23 to ban all meetings and events until June 1, we are unfortunately forced to cancel the LJSO concerts of May 24 (Kerkrade theater), June 7 (Thorn Open Air Theater) and all scheduled rehearsals. The planned concerts of the LJSO ensemble on June 1 in Reijmerstok and Rekem have also been canceled. We are very disappointed, also considering that we are celebrating our 10th anniversary this year, but the Corona crises is now the top priority. Now we will focus on future concerts and online initiatives to keep the spirit of our orchestra alive and keep in touch. Take good care of yourself and each other. Thank you for your understanding. Board of the Limburg Youth Symphony Orchestra.
