FAME’S European Orchestral Performing Institute opened a European Creative orchestral program for skilled young musicians in the field of orchestral music last year. The project is co-funded by Creative Europe and is part of Pan-European cultural entities, focused on allowing young talented musicians to participate in various orchestral practices, exploring new repertoires and performance styles within the FAME’S Project – a dedicated studio for orchestral music recordings. The program offers a highly professional level of training, practicing, mentoring, and performing, through new methodologies and technologies based on all involved partners experience.

Each seminar lasts 6 weeks and is organized around five topics and practice subjects (classical music, film and media, hybrid orchestral, carte blanche, recording sessions)

The chosen applicants will receive fully funded scholarship for the masterclasses. They will be welcomed  and accommodated on FAME’S premises. The participants will only take charge of their travel costs.The program aims to reach around 160 participants from at least 20 European countries over three years.

Each seminar consists of 5 different masterclasses, practices:

  • Film/media/video game music (Thursday, 20 July – Wednesday, 26 July)
