The Limburgs Jeugd Symfonie Orkest is proud to announce violinist and first concertmaster of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra Vesko Eschkenazy has become one of the ambassadors of the LJSO. On November 28, Vesko was a guest to coach our young musicians during their last rehearsal for the Winter Concert on December 5 in theater Kerkade.
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 Dvořák. 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!
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.
Rehearsals for the spring concerts will start from march 2022.
