European Youth Music Week is an annual summer course for advanced young instrumentalists aged 16 to 26, offering the chance to play great symphonic and chamber repertoire, whilst meeting like-minded people from across the globe.
Working with top orchestral conductors, students have the unique opportunity to be inspired and develop their instrumental and ensemble skills through experiencing challenging repertoire they would not normally encounter.
A unique feature of EYMW is that seating arrangements are not fixed. A violinist is just as likely to find themselves leading a section as sitting on the back desk; or a flautist playing a challenging solo or doubling second flute. This provides an equal opportunity for everyone to develop their orchestral playing.
