Sinfonisches Jugendblasorchester Wien

Vienna Symphonic Brass Music


The Vienna Symphonic Brass Music, an institution that would be missed in the cultural and social life and that has a long tradition with successful conductors and Kapellmeisters, is struggling to find new blood for its music bands. To work against this trend, the Symphonic Youth Brass Music Orchestra Vienna was founded by the youth consultant of the Vienna Symphonic Band Association in cooperation with the music schools of the City of Vienna, in order to inspire more youths for brass music. Through projects the youths get to know brass music literature, with which they are seldom confronted with in brass music associations or in music schools.
Despite its short existence, some youths could already be inspired for the fascination of brass music. The first big concert of the orchestra took place in April 2004 in the Wiener Konzerthaus. In the meantime the orchestra performs twice a year in the Konzerthaus in the concert series „Mundstücke“.
These concerts especially feature contemporary Austrian composers.
Through the cooperation with the Austrian Composers’ Association, the orchestra was able to present 14 premieres to the public. In addition, numerous instrumental soloists were invited (Vienna Philharmonics, the RSO Vienna, etc.) to play with the orchestra. Guest orchestras are also invited to take part in the concert series „Mundstücke“ in order to promote the musical exchange among youths and to convey the high quality of the Austrian brass music to the public. Next to the concert series the orchestra is a welcome guest at numerous events and projects.
