Bratislava Music Agency
841 06 Bratislava 4
From a very young age, our young members receive professional guidance in their personal development as people and musicians. Through original productions (concerts, competitions), both nationally and internationally, our youth orchestra can enjoy a first experience onstage. In time, they can flow through to the greater orchestra. As a result, the youth orchestra is a very important part of Vooruit, forming the basis for its continuous existence and upkeeping its quality in the future. In 2015 they won a first price in the European youth Festival in Neerpelt.

Currently he is still a teacher of brass and jazz at the Academy of Music of Harelbeke and teacher trombone, tuba, trumpet at the Kunsthumaniora of Ghent.
