In the late 1970’s the Beveren wind orchestra “Harmonie Kunst & Vreugd” chose to start working with young musicians and founded a separate orchestra for students and young musicians, the “jeugdharmonie”. In the beginning the “jeugdharmonie” mainly played the pre-program for the concerts of the “adult” orchestra, however since some years they also play their own concerts. At this moment the orchestra is composed by about 35 young musicians, all studying or having studied at the local music academy in Beveren, Belgium. Apart from making music together, the orchestra pays great attention to organizing side activities to strengthen friendship in the group. The yearly highlight of the group is the weekend-stay, where making music together is alternated with lots of games and fun. In 2018 the young musicians are looking forward to their first foreign trip as an orchestra, participating in the International Youth Music Festival in Bratislava.
