SKUSO – Youth orchestra
The initiative was implemented for the very first time in February 2020, but due to the prevailing corona pandemic, the next time will be first before and during the 2022 February holiday.
SKUSO is jointly run by Malmö Live Konserthus and the cultural schools in Lund and Malmö. The network Skånes Musik- och Kulturskolor supports the project, which is made possible with financial support from Sparbanksstiftelsen Skåne, Sparbanksstiftelsen Färs & Frosta, Sparbanksstiftelsen Finn and thus also Swedbank.
A unique opportunity for young musicians
In SKUSO, students from Skåne's music and culture schools get the opportunity to play in a musical context that for many is not available in their hometown. The orchestra rehearses for the most part during the sports holiday at Malmö Live Concert Hall and the week ends with a festive concert in front of an audience in the concert hall. During the week, the students practice and play daily in a large orchestra led by a professional conductor, and they meet and play together with other students living in Skåne who play classical instruments. They can also learn from and play together with musicians from both the Malmö Symphony Orchestra and Skåne's music and culture school teachers who are instructors.
