Odeon Jugendsinfonieorchester München

 

The Odeon Youth Symphony Orchestra was founded in october 2006. Its musicians in the age of 15- 25 originate from the Munich metropolitan area and have to prove their musical competence prior to become accepted as a member of the orchestra.
Quite a lot of the musicians have already received awards in competitions like "Jugend musiziert" on federal & regional level. Nevertheless each interested young person can apply for membership in the orchestra. The orchestra regularly meets for training once a week for 3 hours and on top of this once or twice a year in the Munich area as well as abroad in summer.
The orchestra presents four programmes a year spread over the four seasons and performs mainly in schools but also in major concert halls including the Munich University "Aula". In 2007 the orchestra performed in Hungary. In august 2008 performances in Chile are planned.
The orchestra practices professionalism in each respect as well collective and / or individual support under the professional assistance by members of the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra all this under the leadership of Julio Doggenweiler Fernandez who is the musical director and the conductor in resi-dence since the orchestra was founded.
The programme presented by the orchestra includes symphonic music from all periods with a particu-lar emphasis on modern or contemporary music.
The Odeon Youth Symphony Orchestra is proud on having received in november 2007 the "Bavarian Orchestra Competition Award" with outstanding success and thus has qualified for the "German Orchestra Competition" which will take place in mai 2008 in Wuppertal.
