The Limburgs Jeugd Symfonie Orkest is the only youth symphony orchestra in Limburg. The aim of the LJSO is to let young musicians in the age category 14 - 25 years play together at the highest possible level in a fully-fledged symphony orchestra.
The orchestra consists of students from conservatories, music schools and young talent from private education.
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.
In 2017 he received the 'WMC talent award'. Since 2018, Samuel has been oboist of Colombia's National Youth Symphony Orchestra. As guest conductor he has worked with the municipal youth orchestra from Medellin and the European Union Harmony Orchestra.
Playing in an orchestra is a fantastic experience: playing together with other musicians at a high level and experiencing all kinds of music. Your concentration and 'dare to play' grows.
