We are the creators of this project: Severiano Paoli, Teodora Nedyalkova and Guillem Cabré Salagre.
We are three professional musicians from, respectively, Italy, Bulgaria and Spain, whose paths crossed during our study
years at the Prins Claus Conservatorium in Groningen. We're all experienced in solo, orchestra and ensemble playing, and we
all worked with professional orchestras, in the Netherlands and outside them. We also have own projects, from early to
contemporary music, passing through teaching and researching. While coming from different backgrounds, we all three share
the same passion and fire towards music, and we believe in creating something new which would not only bring professional
satisfaction to us, but also a contribution to the cultural life of the country we live in, the Netherlands.
A new, young and dynamic chamber orchestra from and for the north of the Netherlands.
About this project
The Netherlands is a country with a dynamic cultural life, where the society considers art as a primary value for its development, and
that's why hosts some of the best orchestras in Europe and in the world. In main cities like Amsterdam and Rotterdam you can find
ensembles covering from chamber music up to the biggest symphonic repertoire (e.g. the Koninklijk Concertgebouw Orkest, the
Amsterdam Sinfonietta, etc.).
Unfortunately, the north area of the country (Groningen, Friesland and Drenthe), while having a big symphony orchestra (the Noord
Nederland Orkest) is missing a professional chamber orchestra; thus a big part of the repertoire is seldom, if not almost never,
performed in such regions.
What we want is to found a professional and dynamic chamber orchestra based in the North of the Netherlands. Our
main goals are: bringing beautiful music to our audience, involving our spectators into our performances, and make
classical (but not only!) music popular among younger listeners. Therefore, we will not just play, but also explain our
music, use audio visuals and other means, including other art forms, for an exciting experience.
We believe that youngsters are the audience of the future, and so we have an eye for them. Therefore, we will create projects with
schools and educational structures to involve them and make them enjoy and appreciate great music, not just proposing it to them but
involving them actively into it.
Our startup project is 1 concert in the Kleine Zaal of the Oosterpoort, Groningen.
