  • about 1 year ago

The European Federation of National Youth Orchestras (EFNYO) held its General Assembly from 21st to 24th April 2016 in Paris, France. Meetings were co-hosted by EFNYO’s French member, the Orchestre Français des Jeunes (OFJ).

Thirty delegates coming from 15 different countries exchanged on a variety of aspects, contributing towards developing EFNYO’s MusXchange program beyond 2017. This included discussions on new strategies and formats involving new partners within and outside the EFNYO such as festivals, professional orchestras and orchestra networks, and business partners.




The full members' meeting focused on internal business such as conference reports, incoming correspondence, finance, membership and networking issues.

Presentations and round table discussions included guest speakers from the Association Française des Orchestres (AFO), the Philharmonie de Paris and professional orchestras from France (Orchestre de Paris, Orchestre de Picardie). 

AFO presented a highly relevant audience research led among French orchestras. Further presentations of guests concentrated on programming for new venues, and educational programs.
