In August 2019, the Orchestra Summer Camp took the form of an active musical vacation.
It was attended by 65 young musicians from all regions of Slovenia. From 23 to 30 August 2019, music and other art workshops with various contents were held in Ljubljana and preparations for a concert with Vlado Kreslin in Križanke. Composers Jani Golob (Slovenia) and Valter Sivilotti (Italy) have re-arranged the carefully selected Kreslin songs as compositions for the symphony orchestra especially for us. In the first three days of the camp, we first performed sectional rehearsals for individual instruments or groups with mentors for technical and stylistic music training. This was followed by tutti orchestra rehearsals and separate rehearsals with Vlado Kreslin. We prepared art workshops for young musicians together with the Pioneer Center – Center for Youth Culture, and through them touched other arts and skills that open the horizons and enhance self-confidence, concentration and confidence for a relaxed and easily better performance of young musicians. On the day of the concert, a general rehearsal with a sound rehearsal took place at the Križanke Summer Theater, followed by the concert.
