Orchestra apprenticeship for children and teens: Balkan music.

Stage d'orchestre JMS - 2016


This year, the orchestra apprenticeship for children and teenagers aims to put on four concerts conducted by Yuram Ruiz. The goal is to give young people between the ages of 8 and 15 an initiation into the orchestra where they will play a classical repertoire that suits their abilities.

Recreational activities, sports, and workshops take place alongside study in the afternoon and in the evening. At the end of the apprenticeship the orchestra performs the repertoire that they have practised in a big final concert.

The Aim

Discover the music of Eastern Europe. While in the apprenticeship, children and teens have the opportunity to open up to a new musical universe and make contact with professional musicians.
