Based on works by the great American composers John Adams, Aaron Copland, Charles Ives and George Gershwin, the Summer Orchestra Luxembourg, together with its conductor Pit Brosius, questions the existence of the much-discussed "American sound". With "Appalachian Spring" and "Rhapsody in Blue", two classics of modern American music are on the programme.
The Summer Orchestra Luxembourg (SOL) was founded in 2014 by motivated music students and students with the intention of enriching the summer holiday season with an orchestra project for young talented musicians. Each project consists of an intensive rehearsal week and a final concert. The eight past projects, in which the organisational work was carried out by four students, were very well received by the young orchestra musicians.
In addition to getting to know other music students and making new friendships within the orchestra, achieving a high musical quality is an important aspect of the rehearsal week. The projects offered by the Summer Orchestra Luxembourg are considered a valuable pre-vocational experience; among other things, the orchestra is enriched by professional musicians, who like to share their experience with the young orchestra musicians.
