Maribor International Orchestra 2012
Master classes, summer academy and concerts
Four master classes in 2010 were held by Branimir Slokar (trombone), Latica Honda-Rosenberg (violin), Wolfram Christ (viola), and Klaus Arp (conducting). At the summer academy musicians studied two large-scale symphonic programmes under the principal conductor Klaus Arp, conductor Živa Ploj Peršuh, and tutors – the soloists of the Slovene Philharmonic Orchestra and RTV Slovenia Symphony Orchestra. At the opening MIO2012 concert Stravinsky's A Soldier's Tale was performed in the Union Hall and directed by Diego de Brea.
The orchestra also toured in Belgrade (Serbia), Ljubljana (Slovenia), Forli and Pesaro (Italy). An important feature of the project is the documentation and further dissemination of the orchestra's achievements, thus most of the concerts were recorded by Radio Slovenia, Festival Ljubljana Public Institute, or Radio-Television Serbia.
The MIO2012 project is run in collaboration with the international partners that assist with the auditions for the Academy (in 2010 these were Interkultura in Macedonia and Balkan Youth Union in Serbia). Slovene partners were Ljubljana Musical Youth and the University of Ljubljana. In 2011 the project is lead by Glasbena matica Ljubljana.
