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

    During the academy course, which starts in September 2021, 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.


    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 2021 through June 2022) and to participate in all activities offered. The academists are responsible for obtaining their health insurance and their housing in Amsterdam.

    Technical specifications and recording tips video

    Recording devices

    - a phone or tablet with a good internal microphone or preferably with an external microphone attachment

    - a laptop with a USB microphone or microphone connected to an audio interface

    - a sound recorder with build-in camera or combined with video from phone/tablet or camera

    Camera frame and microphone placement

    - experiment with the placement of your recording device(s) to achieve the following results:


                 -           Make sure to have adequate lighting while recording, with no bright lights or bright windows in the background. 

                               If the lighting in a room isn't sufficient you can use a window with daylight as a natural light source.

                 -           Play standing

                 -           Frame yourself so that at least your entire upper body and face are visible. Have the full instrument in the frame with a clear view of the slide action.


                 -           A clear and undistorted recording is the goal. If the sound is distorted, change the distance or bell orientation to the microphone. 

                 -            Choose a quiet and well sounding location that is not too dry or has too much echo.

    Editing and recording "takes"

                 - You are allowed to combine audio and video from different sources but the recording as a whole should be made in one unedited take.

                 - At the beginning of the recording introduce yourself with your name and country.
