The National Youth Wind Orchestra Luxembourg (NYWOL) is an organization of the Music School of the National Music Federation of Luxembourg “Union Grand-Duc Adolphe” (UGDA), which meets every year for a working session and concert tour in a different country.
The first session of the orchestra was organized in 1974 with a concert tour in Czechoslovakia and then in 1976 to the United States (Illinois and Michigan) on invitation of Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp. After a long interruption the orchestra was reestablished in 1991 with a concert tour in Austria and Liechtenstein. Since then, annual sessions have taken place in Belgium, France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Spain, Portugal, USA and Wales.
This ensemble is composed of young musicians aged between 14 and 20 coming from various conservatories, music schools, and music associations of Luxembourg; it includes prize winners from the «Luxembourg Competition for Young Soloists».
The aims of the orchestra are to support the musical education of young musicians from Luxembourg, to promote a varied repertoire for wind orchestra, especially works written by Luxembourg and European composers, as well as to promote youth exchanges between different countries. The orchestra is conducted by professional conductors and tutors from Luxembourg and abroad.
