The Southeast Asian Youth Chamber Orchestra was created in October 2012 by the joined forces of the College of Music at Mahidol University and Goethe-Institut, Thailand. The aim of the orchestra is to promote classical music in Southeast Asia by providing young musicians an opportunity to work with international level artists on the campus of Mahidol University. The first meeting of the orchestra a year ago was a big success that brought together talented young musicians from all over Southeast Asia that presented two concerts in Thailand and in Myanmar.
SEAYCO 2013 will take place during the week of October 5-12 and will feature young musicians, ages 15-26, from Cambodia, Indonesia, Myanmar, Philippines, Malaysia, Vietnam and Thailand. In addition, the program will feature conductor Nicolás Pasquet and and young German violinist Tobias Feldmann. During the workshop, the young musicians will have the opportunity to experience professional orchestra rehearsals and to work with Mahidol University faculty members in preparation of their final concert. The concert program will feature compositions by Mozart, Schubert and Mendelssohn.
The final concert will take place on Saturday, October 12 at 4 p.m. at the Music Auditorium of the College of Music, Mahidol University. It is free and open to the public. Goethe-Institut will offer a bus ride to the event at 2 p.m. from Chan Phen Restaurant, Rama 4 (MRT Lumphini Exit 1.) The cost for the roundtrip transfer will be 100 THB. In addition to the event in Thailand, SEAYCO 2013 will also visit Vietnam for a unique concert in Hanoi. For further information please contact us at the following:
