Drug' orkester

School orchestra of "II. Gymnasium Maribor"

This amateur Orchestra was founded in 2002 and brings together current or former students of II. Gymnasium Maribor and from several other schools in which the students are either actively studying an instrument or  have been in the past and achieved an adequate level of playing to participate in the orchestra. Since 2002 the orchestra was led in turn by Nikolaj Sajko and Tomaž Gajšt with help of mentors Barbara Upelj, Špela Huzjak and Vasko Lukas. The orchestra prepares two concerts annually: one before Christmas and one in spring, each with a different musical theme. Some acclaimed artists from different musical genres were featured as guests: Vlatko Stefanovski, Jadranka Juras, Marko Hatlak... Not only has this orchestra performed in the Amphitheater of II. Gymnasium but also in locations such as: Great Hall of the Narodni dom Maribor, Great Hall of Slovene National Theatre,Tabor Hall, different venues of Festival Lent, Great Hall of the Institute of St. Stanislav Ljubljana etc.

Nikolaj Sajko has led the students into the worlds of film music, musicals, classical, rock, jazz, chanson and Slovenian pop evergreens. He is preparing all the arrangements, in addition he also composed some pieces especially for the orchestra.


Despite the yearly change of members, it contains a very diverse instrumental ensemble with large differences in musical knowledge and skills from the members. The orchestra develops a specific orchestral sound that combines components of a symphonic band, jazz big-band and rock band. Concerts are designed for young people and are an interesting, often multi-media music event, that inspires audience and performers - the goal is not perfection, but diverse creative musical animation of youth.
