Famous pieces or magnificent symphonies – in the hands of Vägus, above all, with the unmistakable desire and energy that has become their special characteristic. And the symphony orchestra is constantly renewed, only conductor Simon Phipps has been with since its inception in 2000. The musicians are between the ages of 14 and 20, and for many, Vägus becomes a memory for life.
Each spring and autumn term, the orchestra gathers for a couple of weekends for intensive rehearsals. The days are filled with fun and community and with our help we have instructors from the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra and the Gothenburg Opera. When the weekend is over, you are guaranteed a longing for next time! Every semester, Vägus goes on tour and gives concerts for both adults and children.
2020 celebrates the 20th anniversary of Västra Götaland’s Youth Symphony Orchestra and at the same time becomes part of Göteborgs Symfoniker AB.
