Styriarte Youth Orchester


Ein Sinfonieorchester aus den vielversprechendsten jungen Musiker*innen: Das hat sich sich Pultstar Andrés Orozco-Estrada von der Styriarte gewünscht – und bekommen. Die Mitglieder des neuen Klangkörpers, ausgewählt von einer hochkarätigen Jury, leben und musizieren alle in Österreich, stammen aber aus 18 unterschiedlichen Ländern der Erde.

Mei-Ann Chen


Born in Taiwan, Mei-Ann Chen has lived in the US since 1989 and holds a doctorate in music (conducting) and a master’s degree in violin performance. One of America’s most promising young conductors, she was the first woman to win the Malko International Conductors Competition and has been appointed chief conductor of Recreation Graz beginning fall 2021.

Adrian Schvarzstein

Wherever this man appears, he guarantees to surprise us. Adrian Schvarzstein, born in Buenos Aires in 1967, is not only an actor and clown of international renown, but with his directing works inspired by commedia dell'arte, street art and circus, he turns every musical theatre piece into an adventure for audience and artists alike.


Young orchestra sound

And Adrian Schvarzstein turns the orchestra concert into great theatre.
