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 November 22 (Kerkrade theater), November 29 (Theresiakerk Maastricht) and all planned rehearsals in the context of these concerts. The concerts have been moved to Saturday April 24 (Heerlen theater) and Sunday April 25 (Theresiakerk Maastricht). Rehearsals for these concerts will start on Sunday March 14, 2021. De strings workshop with Vesko Eschkenazy will also be replanned 12 june 2021.
Unfortunately we have not been able to complete our rehearsals with the concerts, but the rehearsals have brought our orchestra a lot on a musical level and group level. Below some pictures of one of the last rehearsals. We look forward to continue working together in 2021 and wish everyone the very best.
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.
Mr Ger Koopmans, member of the Provincial Executive of Limburg, has joined the LJSO's Committee of Recommendation.
On behalf of Mr. Koopmans and the other members of the Committee of Recommendation (Mrs. Marjon Lambriks, Mr. Jeroen Lenaers, Mr. Van Reg van Loo and Mr. Onno Hoes), the Board, conductor and orchestra members we wish everyone a lot of strength in these special times.
