European Youth Orchestra Academy
Our biggest project is the European Youth Orchestra Academy, or EYOA for short. Once a year we invite 50 young European musicians aged 14 to 18 years to Mannheim and offer them a 10-day orchestra academy under the direction of a renowned conductor and in cooperation with the Mannheim Municipal Music School. Two final concerts are the highlight of the workshop.
Our aim is to promote and deepen the friendships of young Europeans through the unifying element of music. Besides making music together, we achieve this through political and cultural lectures, interactive discourses and political journeys. These activities are intended to deepen and strengthen cohesion and international understanding as well as friendships among young Europeans. From 2022 up to six concerts are also planned in four European cities under the motto In the footsteps of Mozart.
Details of our European Youth Orchestra Academy, such as how to apply and which works are on our 2021 programme, can be found on our EYOA-homepage.
