Young Musicians’ Academy of the Athens State Orchestra, new academic year 2019-2020
Monday, 5 August 2019
It is with remarkable success that the third year of the ‘Young Musicians Academy of the Athens State Orchestra’, has come to an end. We fair well seventeen more talented young musicians, confident that we contributed to their formation to participate in auditions and competitions all over the world and to enroll in professional orchestras.
Eminent musicians of the Athens State Orchestra, distinguished soloists and conductors assumed this inspiring work.
All students have proven themselves worthy of the particularly demanding conditions, participating in regular concerts of the Orchestra, in Athens and in other cities, as well in chamber music concerts; they were embraced with the best comments by the audience and by musicians of the Orchestra, soloists and conductors.
Thanks are due to the foundation granter of the Academy, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, as well as to Athens Concert Hall Organization, which eagerly embraced this initiative since its beginning, offering the necessary additional venues for the programme.
For the year 2019-2020, we are in the pleasant position to invite six (6) more new musicians to enroll the Young Musicians’ Academy of the Athens State Orchestra, while the until lately freshmen of the Young Musicians’ Academy of the Athens State Orchestra in the classes of strings, percussion and harp, will continue in the second year of their studies.
