Orchestras (musicians already holding a post – for continued training via the AFDAS)
The JOR will make their selection based on Curriculum Vitae and a motivation letter. It is absolutely required that all participants have historical instruments (with gut strings), tuned to 415HZ

For teachers and musicians already in prefessional orchestra, video or audio will not be requested.

Important Information:

The instrumentalists will receive the scores (separate parts as well as a score with basso continuo figures) 3 months before the production.

Two months before the Academy, the JOR will open a Zoom chat room with further information about learning and preparing the pieces.

It is required that all participants totally master the score (including application of the bowings sent by the concert master, as well as mastery of the orchestral parts and the style).

The participants selected for 2021 will have the option of participating in two sessions (2021-2022). In order for their candidacy to be validated for the second year, the participant must send a confirmation letter at the end of the 2021 session.


The JOR retains the option of excluding the participation of one or several participants, after discussion with the faculty, if the participant has not respected the rules and conditions.
