The Hanns Eisler School of Music Berlin will host the national auditions for the European Union Youth Orchestra (EUYO) 2018. The auditions take place on October 21 and 22, 2017 at the Academy’s Marstall Building; the application deadline is October 9, 2017.
Music students from all over Germany and EU citizens studying or living in Germany aged 16 to 26 may apply to audition. For 40 years, the European youth orchestra has been a symbol for the cultural diversity of Europe.
For 2018 the EUYO is planning two working periods, one from March 19 to April 18, 2018 and one in the summer, from July 16 to August 25, 2018. The spring period takes place under the baton of Vasily Petrenko and takes the orchestra to concerts in and outside of Europe; the summer period will be led by Manfred Honeck and Gianandrea Noseda and includes residencies in Grafenegg and Bolzano and further concerts on tour.
