National Youth Orchestra

The NJO National Youth Orchestra of the Netherlands was founded in 1957. It offers young talented musicians between 18 and 27 years old the opportunity to perform orchestral and chamber music at a (pre)professional level. For instance during the NJO Summer Festival, an annual festival involving the most beautiful locations in the province of Gelderland, and during the NJO Winter Tour, when the orchestra travels to the best concert halls in the country.

NJO at Muziekzomer Gelderland

NJO with Kalina Vladovska and conductor Chloe Rooke

In the summer of 2023, the Muziekzomer Gelderland took place again. Regular opportunity for the National Youth Orchestra to present various performances. This year these were the musical comedy 'I want more!', the collaboration with young artist in residence Kalina Vladovska and a Beethoven programme led by Wouter Vossen with pianist Nikola Meeuwsen. A summer in which the orchestra members went out together, braved the rain and enjoyed 'gezellige' times at the Stayokay Hostel. A valuable experience they will never forget!
