• Academy teacher as orchestra manager

    17th of November 2013 · tags:

    Niels Bastrup, who teaches at the Academy in music theory and music history, has just been appointed new Head of Orchestra MidtVest. The orchestra consists a.o. of talented young pupils from MGK in Holstebro, supplemented by professional music teachers and assistants from the symphony orchestras in Jutland. The orchestra is an important part of the talent development work and holds 2-3 series of concerts annually, primarily with symphonic music.

    Chairman of the orchestra and head of the music school in Holstebro, Martin Gade, says: With Niels Bastrup we have found a visionary leader, which we believe will be able to develop and inspire the orchestra in the meeting of young talents, adult amateurs and professionals.

    Orchestra MidtVest recently played three concerts with Haydn's Creation, where both current and former students from the Academy played in the orchestra. Niels Bastrup hopes to develop cooperation with Academy students in the future.
