To allow beginners to join the HMD very soon, a youth band has been founded. This band, which is really more a beginner's band than a pure youth band, performs easy pieces so that new musicians can join already after only one year of studies on their instrument. After a few years of ongoing education in the youth band, they will join the 'big' orchestra. Of course, the youth band also performs in public.
The youth-band is also for beginning adults, who only later in their life picked up a musical instrument or made a longer pause. Don't be shy, get in touch with us and we'll find a way so that you can have fun with us making music.

Our conductor Christoph Strupp will be pleased to have you in our rows.

Rehearsals are on Friday from 18:00 - 19:15 at the Centre Culturel 'opderschmelz' in Dudelange
