The “Vladimir Lovec” Symphony Orchestra
The Symphony Orchestra “Vladimir Lovec” of the Koper Music School with its branches in Izola and Piran and the Koper Grammar School unites students of higher basic musical education, students of the Musical Grammar School and last but not least teachers of all three music schools of the coastal region.
The orchestra performed for the first time in 1955 under the direction of conductor Vladimir Lovec. The orchestra was also named after him. In the beginning, the orchestra was composed only of string players. 50 years later it developed into a chamber orchestra. Until 2013, the orchestra performed in symphonic formation only on a project basis, but since 2013 it has performed all year round.
The symphony orchestra “Vladimir Lovec” is proud of its tradition, numerous performances and its members. Many joined the orchestra after gaining their first experience in the young string orchestra or in various string, wind and brass orchestras. Members of the orchestra develop and mature through participation and involvement in various projects.
After graduating from music school, the experienced former members of the orchestra gladly accept our invitations to participate in more important events, thus helping in the development of younger colleagues.
The orchestra has been invited to numerous guest concerts both in Slovenia and abroad, within the framework of regional and national meetings, musical revues, international cooperation and anniversary concerts.
