WORLD YOUTH CHOIR 2020

and National Youth Orchestra of Germany (BJO)

Please note that the audition period is now closed.

In the Summer of 2020, the World Youth Choir will have a special session in the frame of the festivities of the Beethoven Anniversary Year, joining the National Youth Orchestra of Germany – Bundesjugendorchester (BJO) - for a programme with Beethoven’s 9th Symphony and a commission work by Tan Dun entitled Nine. The session will be a unique experience for the 80-100 young singers from around the world and for the audiences who will attend their high-quality concerts.

 

The rehearsal session will be hosted in Bonn from July 30th to August 7th, where the choir and orchestra will have time to work on the pieces both separately and as a combined ensemble. This will be an opportunity to not only make music together but also get to know musicians from other countries and discuss the impact of international cooperation projects on their professional development, through complementary networking activities which will be present in the programme.

Following the rehearsals, the World Youth Choir and National Youth Orchestra of Germany will go on an exciting international tour of concerts, featuring the World premiere of Tan Dun’s piece Nine:
