Sønderjyllands Symfoniorkester

A Brief History

The South Jutland Symphony Orchestra became a regional orchestra in 1963, but the roots go all the way back to 1936, when organist Haakon Elmer took over a string orchestra as conductor.

In 1941, this was transformed into the Sønderborg Symphony Orchestra with director Sv.O. Hansen as chairman of the board. In 1946, the orchestra was transformed into the independent institution, which became the cornerstone of the current symphony orchestra’s existence.

The South Jutland Symphony Orchestra was finally established as a regional orchestra in 1963 and gave its first concert on 22 September 1963.

Sønderjyllands Symfoniorkester

Larsen Strings was established and is based in Sønderborg, the home of the orchestra. Our founder and CEO, Laurits Th. Larsen, had a previous career as a violinist with the orchestra:

“The orchestra is, despite being years ago, my old and highly valued workplace. Several “old” colleagues are among my friends and it is therefore always a great pleasure both personally, but also musically to attend concerts and hear how the orchestra has evolved over the years.”

In 2012, Larsen Strings entered into a partnership with Sønderjyllands Symfoniorkester (South Jutland Symphony Orchestra) supplying the orchestra with high-quality Larsen Strings. Now re-launched as the South Denmark Philharmonic, our partnership has proved more than mutually beneficial with invaluable feedback from musicians helping us to develop our range.

“This successful partnership is very much in line with our mission to produce strings that allow musicians to express nuances in musical expression that close the distance between the composer and audience.”
Laurits Th. Larsen
