Vaasa City Orchestra

Vaasa City Orchestra comprises 31 musicians. James Lowe has been the chief conductor of the orchestra since January 2016. The orchestra works and performs in the historical Vaasa City Hall, in the center of Vaasa.

Regular orchestral concerts in Vaasa date back to 1930, when an Orchestra Society was founded in the town. In 1974, the orchestra became part of the City of Vaasa.

In addition to traditional symphonic, concerts, the orchestra does school concert tours in Vaasa and  its neighboring municipalities.The orchestra frequently collaborates with other orchestras, and occasionally embarks on international tours, having visited for instance Nordic countries, Italy and USA.

Vaasa City Orchestra appears at various festivals during summertime such as Ilmajoki Music Festival, Korsholm Music Festival and Lohtaja Church Music Festival. Since summer 2018, the orchestra has also performed together with international artists at Vaasa Festival.

The orchestra also collaborates with Vaasa Opera Foundation and Vaasa City Theatre.

Since 2012, Vaasa City Orchestra has organized International Jorma Panula Conducting Competition together with Viljo and Maire Vuorio Foundation.
