Slovenian Youth Orchestra

St Stanislav's Institute, Ljubljana

8 days of music, socialising, creativity and fun
Closing concert with top artists at Križanke.

Whom is it for?

POK is for musicians aged between 12 and 22 who are involved in music education.Anyone who has completed music school or secondary music school and is interested in making music with us can join. You can register for the camp without auditioning.

Each year, the Summer Orchestra Camp brings together around 100 young Slovenian musicians to form a large, ad hoc symphony orchestra. Over the course of a week, young people have the unforgettable experience of meeting peers and role models, learning, making music, creating together and preparing for the grand finale: a performance on the big stage of Ljubljana's Križanke in the company of world-class, internationally renowned soloists.

Unforgettable film tunes

This year's programme is a story of music and cinema in close harmony. It makes us nostalgic, takes us back in time, sensually stirs and delights us. Prelude to Summer will take us through stories of films, scenes and the history of living pictures. The programme will include both compositions that were written for the films and existing classical music that was used in the films. Young musicians will once again recreate music of several genres and master the challenging masterpieces of the classical repertoire and original music by Slovenian composers and arrangements. Among Slovenian composers this year we would like to highlight Janez Gregorc, as well as Jani Golob, Marjan Kozina and composers - arrangers of the younger generation, Tomaž Kukovič, Matija Krečič, Nejc Bečan and Marjan Peternel.
