Het Gelders Orkest and Orkest van het Oosten
The Dutch region of Oost-Nederland (Gelderland & Overijssel) is the home of various institutions that stimulate the development of highly talented musicians. The JeugdOrkest Nederland (JON, 14-19 years, The Youth Orchestra of the Netherlands) and the Nationaal Jeugd Orkest (NJO, 18-26 years, National Youth Orchestra) provide training as well as orchestral experience. Almost all Dutch musicians now playing in Dutch professional orchestras were members of one or both of these youth orchestras. These youth orchestras play a national role of interest for young musicians from all conservatoires and for all professional orchestras.
Het Gelders Orkest and Orkest van het Oosten form important links in this development process. As part of their Academy, they offer places for young, very talented musicians to participate in productions while being coached by members of Het Gelders Orkest and Orkest van het Oosten.
The Academy is organising an audition for the following positions for the 2019-2020 season:
