Described by the Guardian as "possibly the best youth orchestra in the world", the EUYO (European Union Youth Orchestra) stands out for its engaging, energetic and capable playing style characterised by great musical detail and packed with collective audacity and outstanding technical ability. The EUYO, which recently moved its registered office to Ferrara in Italy, is numbered among the most prominent symphony orchestras in Europe.
A trait-d'union between youth music and the professional music world, it was described by Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission, as "the best possible ambassador for the European Union" - a role he has officially held for over forty years.
This performance by one of the most dynamic and compelling names on the European music scene is therefore dedicated to the future, to young people and to Europe. The EUYO will play in the prestigious setting of the Serate Musicali in Milan under the direction of the famous Vasily Petrenko, accompanied by the Latvian singer Kristine Opolais, one of the most popular sopranos on the world scene today.
