THE PLANETS WITH VÄGUS

Västra Götalands Youth Symphony Orchestra, Simon Phipp's, conductor

Västra Götalands Youth Symphony Orchestra plays Gustav Holst’s magnificent orchestral work The Planets, an astrological journey from the thundering war god Mars, past the the winged messenger Mercury, to the mysterious sea god Neptune.

Whether a famous piece of music or a magnificent symphony , in the hands of Vägus, everything is performed with the unmistakable lust and energy that has become their special characteristic. The orchestra is constantly renewed with only the conductor, Simon Phipps having been with them since its start in 2000. The musicians are between the ages of 14 and 20, and for many, Vägus becomes a memory for life. Join us and play too!

Each spring and autumn term, the orchestra gathers for a couple of weekends for intensive rehearsals. The days are filled with music making together with instructors from the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra and the Gothenburg Opera Orchestra. Each term, Vägus goes on tour and gives concerts for both adults and children
