Jeugdorkest van de Koninklijke Harmonie van Peer

In the youth orchestra of the Koninklijke Harmonie of Peer, youngsters get to know their instrument, interplay and themselves.

It is a home for youthful wind musicians of 10 to 18 years old, on average.

The better competition pieces provide us with a challenging bar to cross.
Always alternated with fun tunes that will be stuck in your head.

We want to offer the youngsters opportunities to develop themselves (musically).

Working towards competitions lifts the orchestra.
Fun rehearsals, concerts and trips will do the rest.

Above all, the musicians can grow at their own speed.
