Rhythms, colours, emotions

Wenn das keine Musik für ein „Youth Orchestra“ ist! Was Antonín Dvořák im Advent 1893 den New Yorkern als seine Neunte Sinfonie vorstellte, „rockte“ nicht nur die ehrwürdige Carnegie-Hall, sondern bald auch die ganze Welt. Eine „Neue Welt“ der Rhythmen, Farben und Emotionen, wie geschaffen für junge Musikerinnen und Musiker. Mei-Ann Chen, die Amerikanerin mit dem sechsten Sinn für Wirkung, lässt die Helmut List Halle beben.

Styriarte Youth Orchestra


A symphony orchestra of highly qualified and enthusiastic young musicians: that's what Andrés Orozco-Estrada wanted from the Styriarte in 2021 - and that's what he got. Mei-Ann Chen is now taking this orchestra under her wing for the third year. The members of the Styriarte Youth Orchestra come from many different countries around the world and work on their programme in an orchestra camp lasting just under a week.
