Principal Italian Residency Partner
Since 2018, Ferrara Musica is EUYO's Italian home, located at the Teatro Comunale Claudio Abbado di Ferrara. Formal and informal symphonic and chamber performances of the EUYO are the core of the concert season Ferrara Musica which honours the spiritual legacy of Claudio Abbado through the celebration of musical education, performance and learning. Ferrara Musica is both nationally and internationally renowned for its important and rich concert season, which extends from October to May with over 20 exciting events each season. The Association, created in 1989 by its honorary president Claudio Abbado, the Town Council of Ferrara and the Cassa di Risparmio di Ferrara Bank, prides itself on the excellence and originality of its artistic programme. Its mission since the very beginning has been to offer residence to young international orchestras such as the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, the Mahler Chamber Orchestra and from 2018, the European Union Youth Orchestra, which is resident in Ferrara each autumn and spring.
