APPLICATIONS ARE OPEN: Mediterranean Youth Orchestra - Symphonic Sessions | Malta Auditions (26 Nove

ARC Research & Consultancy opens applications for the Malta Auditions of the Mediterranean Youth Orchestra - scheduled for Sunday 26th November 2017. The auditions are part of ARC's project The Mediterranean Dimension, supported by Arts Council Malta and the Valletta 2018 Foundation Multi‐Annual Support Grant (Malta Arts Fund). The project is developed in collaboration with Medinea, Festival d'Aix-en-Provence, Spazju Kreattiv, Malta Philharmonic Orchestra, and Centre for Research in Culture and Performance at the School of Performing Arts at the University of Malta

As part of the Académie du Festival d'Aix since 2014, the Mediterranean Youth Orchestra (MYO) offers talented young musicians from the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region of France and from the Mediterranean basin an immersion in the professional life of ensemble and orchestra musicians. For 30 years now, the MYO transmitted the pleasure of performing the symphonic repertory composed for large orchestras, and has placed creation and intercultural exchanges at the heart of its programmes.

The symphonic session of the Mediterranean Youth Orchestra (MYO) is designed to future professional classical musicians from the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region (France) and from the Mediterranean. This training session offers an intercultural experience of the orchestra life in rehearsals, concerts and on tour within the stimulating frame of the Festival d'Aix-en-Provence. The symphonic session of the MYO provides a high-level musical training where young musicians can benefit from the coaching of experimented artists of the prestigious London Symphony Orchestra while working some repertoire's symphonic masterpieces under the baton of renowned conductors, such as Kazushi Ono in 2018.

Every year, almost 600 musicians apply to one of the auditions organized in twenty countries of the Mediterranean and some 100 young talents are selected to participate in one of the MYO's sessions in Aix-en-Provence.​
