    The Academy offers talented young musicians the opportunity to gain experience as orchestral players in one of the world’s leading symphony orchestras.

    You need to play both instruments: Bass Clarinet and Clarinet

    During the academy course, which starts in September 2020, the academists play in up to twelve programs of the orchestra under the guidance of mentors from the orchestra. In addition, the academists attend private lessons given by the principals, and they play chamber music with fellow academists and with members of the orchestra. They participate in various workshops such as auditioning, educational activities and mental training, and they are offered classes in movement and posture training including Alexander Technique. The academists receive Academy certificates on successful completion of the course.

    Compensation

    The Academy offers each participant a salary of 1,635 euros gross per month ( 10 months).

    We require all participants to be present in the Netherlands for the full season (September 2020 through June 2021) and to participate in all activities offered. The academists are responsible for obtaining their health insurance and their housing in Amsterdam.
