Making a donation to Young

The Concertgebouworkest aims to contribute to greater social diversity in the orchestras of Europe. That’s why Young is primarily intended for talented young musicians whose social situations offer them little opportunity to develop their talent to its best advantage.

Thanks to...

To ensure that participants are unencumbered by financial constraints, enrolment in Young is free. Travel expenses, too, are reimbursed. None of this would be possible without the donations of private individuals, funds and companies.

We are most grateful to all those who donated to help make the first years of Young a reality.
