Lúðrasveit Æskunnar

Lúðrasveit Æskunnar (LÆ) (The Icelandic National Youth Band) is the flagship project of the Icelandic Association of School Concert Bands.  50 to 60 of the best students from all over the country, aged 15-25,  are chosen to be a part of this concert band.  Through LÆ the students are given a chance to play with a full symphonic wind band repertoire that is not always possible with the local school bands.  LÆ was founded in 1989 and has performed regularly since then.  Many Icelandic and foreign conductors have conducted LÆ through the years and this season, 2012-2013, Guðmundur Óli Gunnarsson and Ingi Garðar Erlendsson will conduct the band.
