The fifty musicians are between 16 and 23 years and will offer eight concerts during the year
Carlos Checa is the artistic director of this grouping created with the aim to providing additional training in musical education that young people receive it through an orchestral practice. “Cities like New York, Paris, Rome, Berlin and London already had a young orchestra also believed that Barcelona deserved to have one,” said Checa.
To be part of the young musicians had to be submitted to a hearing. For many of them, this is an opportunity to enhance their career. “Apart from that you practice solo is also very important to do it in the orchestral and chamber music,” said Nuria Comorera, cellist.
To provide this training to young people, the orchestra has a team of specialist teachers and guest conductors like Josep Caballé Domenech, conductor of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Colorado Springs, United States, and general music director of the Orchestra of State Halle, Germany, and Salvador Brotons, renowned conductor and composer from Barcelona, who currently holds the position of conductor of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra and the Barcelona Municipal Band, among others. “I saw teachers and directors who were part of the project and found it a very good initiative. Moreover, all that is gaining experience that can then be used in the professional world is very positive, “said Albert Torrebella violinist of the orchestra.
