EUYO Ferrara Chamber Academy
In September 2018 the EUYO and Ferrara Musica launched the first edition of a new EUYO Ferrara Chamber Academy. The Academy focuses on chamber music teaching and performance, and includes an interesting new pan-European and national element in the combining of professional and young players from Europe and the EU as both teachers and performers, as well as specific opportunities for young Italian musicians.
As part of the Academy, Chamber Orchestra of Europe musicians teach, mentor and perform with EUYO players, who in turn teach, mentor and play with young Italian musicians selected from an open call out, all three groups living and working together in Ferrara. The Academy thus not only helps to develop the chamber music and ensemble skills of the EUYO, but also to further the EUYO’s mission to contribute to the development of young Italian musicians as part of the Orchestra’s new home in Italy.
All current EUYO members automatically receive an invitation to apply to the Academy, subject only to repertoire constraints. An open callout is made to young Italian musicians to apply for the opportunity to perform in the Teatro Comunale Claudio Abbado di Ferrara, to be coached by EUYO musicians, and to attend rehearsals and concerts of the EUYO with guests of the Chamber Orchestra of Europe.
