What is the Erasmus Orchestra?
From 2017, Erasmus Orchestra holds symbolic significance and aims to spread the values of the “Erasmus Generation” – open, dynamic, and supportive – and of Europe, using music as a metaphor for integration, meeting, and the development of skills beyond linguistic, geographic, and cultural barriers.
The Orchestra also aims to promote the many Erasmus+ training and mobility opportunities for students in the Higher Education Artistic and Musical (AFAM) sector, contributing to enhancing the talents and excellence of European Conservatoires and Musical Institutes. This involves promoting collaborations and partnerships that offer opportunities for internationalization and professional experiences for young musicians. Since its debut at the 2017 Festival D’Europa in Florence, the Erasmus Orchestra’s performances have enjoyed great public success.
For the 2024/2025 lineup, the project has expanded to include students from Conservatories in all Erasmus+ countries, involving over 220 students from 22 countries and 60 Conservatoires.
For this new phase, the Agency has collaborated with the European Association of Conservatoires – AEC.
