– A Philharmonic Youth Orchestra

Open to young musicians being in their academic education and aged between 18 and 27 years old our orchestra qualifies as a “Philharmonic Orchestra” with a focus repertoire of classic music of the outgoing 19th and beginning of the 20th century performing major symphonic works for large orchestras.

– An international orchestra with an European focus

Our orchestra members are showing a large diversity of nationalities and are originating from Europe, North and South America, Asia and Africa. Their common denominator is the fact that they are studying at a music university or academy in “greater Europe” including Russia and Turkey. A special regard is given to orchestra members coming from Central and Eastern Europe.

– A project orchestra

Every second year our orchestra reinvents itself by bringing between 80 to 90 young musicians to an Orchestra Academy to practise the concert program with renowned conductors and supported by coaches from well-known professional orchestras. The following Animato Concert Tour brings our orchestra to some of the most famous concert halls in leading European music centres where the concert program is given in front of a numerous public.
