INTERNATIONAL YOUTH EXCHANGE in SWEDEN 2017
Jugendsinfonieorchester Stuttgart (JuSO)
Stuttgart Youth Symphony
DATES June 2 – 14, 2017
ACTIVITIES This international youth exchange offers various opportunities for young students to meet each other and get to know a different culture. In order to facilitate the exchange, we will organize the following activities:
– Meet and greet reception with snacks and drinks
– Combined rehearsals with other youth ensembles
– Rehearsal with the conductor from a partner institution
– Collaborative concerts where both ensembles play
– Master classes with various teachers
– General touring activities in Sweden
EXPECTATIONS In order to provide an intensive cultural exchange between the students, it is optimal when the German students may be hosted by Swedish families. This allows the students to have the most direct contact with Swedish culture and provides the greatest opportunity for exchange and growth. We ask that the host families provide a reasonable place to sleep and breakfast for the guests during their stay.
We ask that the collaborative partner organize and coordinate at least one joint concert in their region. The concert should feature both ensembles playing either separately or together.
In exchange for your hospitality, we extend an open invitation to our collaborative partners to come and visit us in Stuttgart, Germany!

The Stuttgart Youth Symphony of the Stuttgart Music School offers the opportunity to rehearse and perform works of the symphonic repertoire for young musicians aged 14-20 in the greater region of Stuttgart, Germany.
Approximately 70 instrumentalists rehearse weekly and perform 2-3 public concerts each year in and around Stuttgart. The Stuttgart Youth Symphony is open to instrumentalists from the Stuttgart Music School as well as private students. Especially talented young musicians may also be able to perform as a soloist with the orchestra. Since 2007, the orchestra enjoys a direct partnership with the Stuttgarter Philharmonic Orchestra, working with and performing concerts together with the profssional musicians.
Concert tours and exchange projects play an important role in our orchestral activities. Recent tours brought the orchestra to the USA (2008), Spain (2010), Brazil (2012) and China (2014). In 2017 the orchestra is planning to go to Sweden.
