Experience a 20-piece orchestra up close in the famous Astrid Hall with a wonderful program of well-known baroque pieces by Locatelli, Telemann, Vivaldi, Purcell, Bach, Corelli … a pre-Christmas concert evening awaits you.
The Lucerne String Orchestra Santa Maria has been dedicated to a cultivated and diverse orchestral culture for thirty years. Consisting of dedicated amateur musicians and music students – supported by professional musicians – the Santa Maria has made a name for itself far beyond the Lucerne region in recent years. The orchestra regularly causes a stir with unusual, cross-genre projects, world premieres and the promotion of young artists as part of the “Musicians of the Future” series of events.
In addition to performing its own concerts, the Orchestra Santa Maria also accompanies various choirs and maintains close contact with other cultural professionals in the region. Droujelub Yanakiew has been the conductor of the orchestra since autumn 2008.
