Akademische Orchestervereinigung

The Akademische Orchestervereinigung (AOV) is the local orchestra of Göttingen, Germany. The AOV was organized by a collective[?] of local students and other amateur musicians to bring high-quality music to the community. AOV usually gives four concerts per year.

An egalitarian organization, the AOV elects its own conductor, which as of July 2003 is Thomas-Michael Gribow. The orchestra specializes in the performance of classical art music as well as lighter, accessible contemporary music[?]. Since 1991, the orchestra has performed the works of Beethoven, Bizet, Prokofiev, Lutoslawski[?], Weber, Mendelssohn, Schubert, Bernstein, Wagner, Brahms, Henze[?] and more. It gave the world premiere[?] of the "Overture to 'The Bad Room'" by American composer Justin Weaver.
