Animato Foundation is entering from time to time in cooperation projects within the objective to support young musicians with the number of cooperating partners. Memberships in relevant orchestra associations allow Animato Foundation to maintain and expend a professional network and know-how with other national and international youth orchestras.
Actual examples of such cooperation and memberships are:
> DAVOS FESTIVAL young artists in concert
At the initiative of Reto Bieri, the new Artistic Director of DAVOS FESTIVAL young artists in concert (and Coach at various Animato Academies; see under Music Professionals) Animato Foundation has signed a cooperation agreement with DAVOS FESTIVAL young artists in concert in respect to the newly created “DAVOS FESTIVAL Camerata”. The prime objective of this joint venture is to provide to the best orchestra players of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Animato Foundation 2010 and 2012 an opportunity to come to Davos and form the core of the “DAVOS FESTIVAL Camerata 2014”. Animato Foundation welcomes this first cooperation allowing to offer past orchestra members a further opportunity to perfect their playing skills and to interact with pears, festival guests and music professionals present there at the DAVOS FESTIVAL young artists in concert situated in the inspiring Swiss Alpine environment. (see further information on www.davosfestival.ch and under About/News)> European Federation Of National Youth Orchestras
Since 1994 the finest national youth orchestras of Europe have been working closely together and have formed an association of 14 pre-professional orchestras known as the European Federation of National Youth Orchestras (EFNYO). Since then the association has expanded to include to date 17 national, 8 international, and 7 cooperating members.
EFNYO’s major objectives as an advocacy network are to establish a platform of communication on ensemble and orchestra training and a framework for cooperation projects among its members and further network partners.
Animato Foundation is representing the “Philharmonic Orchestra of Animato Foundation” in the European Federation of National Youth Orchestras as an associated member since 2010.
