Enjoying the Wind Band : A case study of community and cohesion in a youth wind band (English)
Abstract [sv]

I denna studie undersöks hur gemenskap och sammanhållning i en ungdomsblåsorkester ser ut och hanteras både utifrån orkesterledarens och de deltagande ungdomarnas synvinkel. Även betydelsen av gemenskap och sammanhållning och hur den tar sin form är frågor som besvaras i uppsatsen. Datamaterialet består av intervjuer med olika grupper av ungdomar ur den studerade ungdomsorkestern samt en intervju med orkesterns ledare. Den studerade orkestern kommer från en stad i mellersta Sverige. I resultatet visas att det är viktigt med en orkestergemenskap och att gemenskapen fås och visar sig i både sociala och musikaliska aktiviteter som bland annat resor, läger, fikastunder, repetitioner och konserter. Blåsorkestern har tydliga musikaliska mål med sin verksamhet och både Ledaren och ungdomarna vill att orkestern ska låta bra och uppnå goda musikaliska resultat. För att nå goda resultat menar Ledaren att gemenskap och sammanhållning är en förutsättning för att verksamheten och det musikaliska arbetet ska fungera. De sociala aktiviteterna ses visserligen som viktiga och för många en bidragande orsak att stanna kvar i Blåsorkestern, men själva musicerandet ses ändå som det allra viktigaste. Resultaten diskuteras utifrån formella och informella aktiviteter med utgångspunkt i teorier om grupper och dess processer, ledarskapsteorier och teorier om sammanhållning.

Abstract [en]

The present study examines how the community and cohesion in a youth wind band may appear and is handled both by the orchestra conductor and the participating youth's point of view. The importance of community and cohesion and how it takes its shape are questions that are answered in the study. The data material consists of interviews with different youth groups from the studied youth wind band and an interview with the wind band's conductor. The studied band comes from a town in central Sweden. The result shows that it is important to have an orchestra community and that the community is present and active through both social and musical activities, including trips, camps, coffee breaks, rehearsals and concerts. The wind band has clear musical goals with their activities and both the leader and the youth strive for a good sound and to achieve good musical results. In order to achieve good results the leader emphasizes that community and cohesion is essential for the activities and the musical work to function. The social activities are certainly regarded as important and for many a contributing factor to remain in the wind band, but musicianship is still seen as the most important factor. The results are discussed based on formal and informal activities on the basis of theories of groups and its processes, leadership theories and theories of cohesion.
