From 9 till 19 April we will present the first LJSO online festival for our musicians, with webinars by the following Dutch classical soloists:
Each speaker will present a different approach towards music, rhythm and the art of orchestral playing.
In the music quiz held on april 17 we will challenge the musical knowledge of our musicians. There are great prices to win!
Following the decision of the Dutch government to cancel all meetings and events related to the Corona crisis, we are unfortunately forced to cancell the LJSO concerts of Saturday April 24 (theater Heerlen), April 25 (Theresiakerk Maastricht) and all planned rehearsals in the context of these concerts. The concerts have been moved to Sunday June 27 (Theresiakerk Maastricht) and Sunday December 5 (Theater Kerkrade). Rehearsals for these concerts will start on Sunday May 2, 2021. We look forward to getting back to work as soon as the Corona measures allow us.
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.
'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.
The rehearsals for the spring concerts of June 20 and 27, 20201will start on Sunday, May 2.
