„I’m simply convinced that you have to start changing things in your environment. Music is a medium that doesn’t need words and with which you can start to convey ideals and maybe even realize them to some extent.“


EYOA conductor Jan-Paul Reinke on young people, classical music and the European idea. Read the whole interview with Mannheimer Morgen here.

European Youth Orchestra Academy

Our biggest project is the European Youth Orchestra Academy, or EYOA for short. Once a year we invite around 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.

„The certainly formative experience of the young musicians to be able to present in only one week – completely independent of origin and cultural background – in common hard rehearsal work finally a performance comparable to that of a grown orchestra to an enthusiastic audience (the thunderous applause spoke volumes!) is an invaluable value for the personality development of the young Europeans.“
