Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra Academy
We future proof symphonic careers of young talent. By inviting them into our orchestra family to play-along, to coach and teach them, but also to explore the future of symponic music and orchestras. In their new playground Rotterdam. And ultimately to help them kickstart their symphonic career.
About the academy
As from the 2021/2022 concert season, the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra will annually welcome a group of international top talents to take part in the orchestra’s academy. The talents will play in the orchestra and will be guided by coaches and other musicians. They also participate in educational and chamber music projects.

The academy of the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra is made possible by Ahold Delhaize.
