Slovene National Youth Orchestra

In the 10th inspiring year of Ljubljana International Orchestra, whose members are young professionals from 45 countries of the world, and after the establishment of the regional project United Children’s Philharmonic Orchestra, which connected children from Slovenia to Macedonia and reached 11.000 listeners of concerts in only one working phase, it is now time for new steps in forming firm connections on the national level.

Slovene National Youth Orchestra is a project, space and story connecting entire Slovenia. Young musicians aged 14 to 19 will be offered the possibility of opening themselves and at the same time strengthening the musical and cultural bridges. The aim of the orchestra is spending time together in the creation of music, raising the enthusiasm for music and art in general, building friendships and reaching progress. This is the time and space in which young people evolve their talent to perfection while learning about the variety of music and personal paths.

In the framework of a sustainable program at the highest level and in cooperation with renowned experts from different musical (and other artistic) fields, we will promote the development of the personality and capabilities of individuals, while strengthening and addressing a responsibility attitude towards society, solidarity and humanity. We want young people to become more conscious and caring about national values ​​as well as other cultures, countries and individuals.

The effective long-term implementation of the musical project Slovene National Youth Orchestra opens incomparable opportunities for representation and presentation of the enormous cultural potential our country has to offer. The main participants are and will be young people who shape and enrich our country tomorrow. Our young artists, the future artistic elite, will reach for the highest challenges to become renown in broader Europe.

We will work with the young artists several times a year. In the summer, the Orchestra Camp will be open to all young musicians of appropriate age who wish to participate in the orchestra, to experience the composition of a large ensemble and participate in many other activities.

In other working phases, we will select musicians and prepare meaningful programs with which we will keep up with other national youth orchestras who have been successful for years in raising young professionals and representing their countries at the highest artistic level.

The events of the Slovene National Youth Orchestra will be held under the sponsorship of the Prime Minister of the Republic of Slovenia, Mr. Marjan Šarec.

Sponsors and co-producers are the City of Ljubljana, the Ljubljana Festival and Pionirski dom – Center for Youth Culture.
