The Mediterranean Youth Orchestra is appointed to organise symphonic orchestra training sessions designed to young future professional musicians from the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur Region and the Mediterranean willing to have a professional experience of orchestral life in rehearsals, concert and on tour.
Today, the Mediterranean Youth Orchestra follows, within the Académie of the Festival d'Aix-en-Provence, the development of its assignment in training, professional integration, exchange and cooperation in the Euro-Mediterranean area.
The OJM Symphonic Orchestra training session is part of the Orchestra Academy of the Festival d’Aix-en-Provence. Dedicated to symphonic music, it is open to young musicians in their last years of studies enrolled in conservatories in the PACA area and the Mediterranean. This session also encapsulates a student-tutors training which brings the young professional musicians to learn techniques and have experience in sharing classical music with young people and those unable to go to performances. Young musicians hired for the Mediterranean Youth Orchestra's training session benefit from a coaching by musicians of the London Symphony Orchestra and work on repertoire's symphonic masterpieces under the baton of prestigious conductors.
