It is a unique music ensemble in its kind made up of students of Italian conservatories and music institutes who participated or are taking part in an Erasmus international mobility experience. The orchestra aims to promote the values of the Erasmus generation that is open, dynamic and supportive and the values of Europe, by using music as a metaphor of integration, encounter and development of competences beyond any linguistic, geographical and cultural barriers. Since the beginning, the performances of the Erasmus orchestra has obtained great success of audience and from the media and institutional interest beyond national level.
