Orch Ottmar Gerster Leipzig

The “Junge Sinfonieorchester der Musik- und Kunstschule „Ottmar Gerster“( Young Symphony Orchestra of the Music and Art School "Ottmar Gerster") from the district of Leipzig was formed in 2016 from an original string section in conjunction with the Musikschul-Big-Band. Since then, the orchestra has been able to play a wide repertoire - from symphonic pieces from past centuries to film music and light music from the 20th and 21st centuries. Unique is the great age range of 11-22 years and the large catchment area of our orchestra: from 11 cities and 2 communities, our students come together to make music together, to find a common sound and to go on an expedition through the history of music. In concerts, the orchestra regularly presents itself to a large audience. With great excitement and joyful anticipation, the young people participate for the first time in the European Music Festival in Sneek.
