JOIN THE FRIENDS!

Embrace the EUYO - join the Friends! 

Our musicians are young, talented and passionate. They are drawn from each of the 28 member countries of the European Union and come together to play in a symphony orchestra that transcends cultural boundaries and performs all over the world to the highest standards. 


Why join us?

By joining the Friends of the EUYO you are helping to create the next generation of leading orchestral musicians. Your support - large or small - is vital to help ensure the long-term future of the Orchestra.

 

There is no fee for auditioning and once a musician is offered a place in the Orchestra, we aim to cover all their expenses relating to our tours, including tuition, travel, accommodation and subsistence. We consider this a key part of the EUYO's role in supporting young musicians looking to take part in intensive educational tours such as ours. It costs roughly £5,000 to send each musician on one tour.
