 About the name of the orchestra:

- VAMOS is spanish and it means: Let's go!

- The history behind the name is like this:

We sat down with my colleague and tried to think a name for the new orchestra in May 2011. We thought that the name of the orchestra should be somehow connected to the name of our home town Vantaa and the word musiikkiopisto (= music institute in finnish). It took a while but then we gathered the VA from Vantaa and MO from MusiikkiOpisto and added the extra S and thus the name VAMOS was created.
