The European Union Youth Orchestra is one of the world’s pre-eminent symphony orchestras. Founded in 1976, the Orchestra has worked with great artists such as Daniel Barenboim, Leonard Bernstein, Sir Colin Davis, Herbert von Karajan, including former Music Directors Claudio Abbado and Vladimir Ashkenazy, former Music Director and current Conductor Laureate Bernard Haitink, and Chief Conductor Vasily Petrenko. The EUYO’s 3.000 alumni are now notable conductors, soloists, teachers, and instrumentalists working with major orchestras throughout the world, including the London Symphony Orchestra, the Berliner Philharmoniker and the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. The EUYO’s Summer Home and Principal Venue Partner is Grafenegg, where in 2014 both organisations launched the European Music Campus. From 2018, the EUYO will expand its relationship with Grafenegg to become Orchestra in Residence. As a joint initiative Campus Grafenegg and the European Union Youth Orchestra offer opportunities for professional development to musicians early in their careers. At Grafenegg, the public has had several opportunities to experience the unique spirit of this young orchestra, and there will be many more to follow! In spring, the Orchestra presents its Easter Concert and Music Gallery, and during the summer, will return to Grafenegg, its ≪Summer Home≫, bringing its spirit to the public in a series of concerts, a Music Gallery, Late Night Sessions and other special events.
