Vivo Symphony Orchestra

Vivo Symphony Orchestra

Founded in 1986, the Vivo Symphony Orchestra is a philharmonic orchestra of young players from all over Finland. Their average age is 18, ranging from ages 14 to 23. The majority of the players are either in high school or already full-time music students, for whom Vivo offers an opportunity to acquire the skills, knowledge and orchestral experience required in various musical professions. 

The orchestra meets for rehearsal periods before concerts. Each player receives the sheet music for practice about one month beforehand. During the rehearsal periods, the players attend both tutti rehearsals and sectionals led by front-line professional Finnish musicians.

Vivo’s repertoire covers all types of orchestral music from symphonies and operas right up to tangos and film melodies arranged for a symphony orchestra. The emphasis is, however, firmly on the great symphonies and tone poems (by such composers as Sibelius, Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Shostakovich, Mahler and Bruckner).

The Vivo Symphony Orchestra’s tours abroad have taken the players to Hungary, Georgia, Canada, the United States, Russia, Sweden, Norway and Denmark and twice to Germany.
