Evaluation of the whole program:
(self-evaluation + evaluation of the faculty/ experience of the concert, organization…)

Given that the spirit of an orchestra is created by group cohesion, it is particularly important to us that the evaluations be both individual and collective. The JOR aims to be a training academy and an aid to professional integration. We feel that access to employment, specifically in the music industry, happens via familiarity with networks and an understanding of the collective way of life of an orchestra musician.

This is why the JOR wants to bring together both musicians who are already employed in orchestras (in the professional training program) and young musicians who are still studying in conservatories and universities.
