The National Festival of Amateur Orchestras

    Representatives and performers from the affiliated orchestras gather once a year on the same stage to celebrate their Annual National Festival: The federation organizes every year, in a different part of the national territory, a festival of amateur orchestras lasting an average of three days. The joint performances are a unique occasion for participants of every age to exchange ideas and improve their technical skills.
    1. Participating orchestras are formed by average citizens' orchestras and youth orchestras (members of youth orchestras must be under 22 years of age)
      They gather for public rehearsals and joint concerts.
    2. Conferences, symposia and debates about management problems are also part of the festival.
    3. Individual seminars and study groups for every section of the orchestra are a unique opportunity for all performers to increase their knowledge and skills.
    4. International exchanges with foreign federations, in particular the German Amateur Orchestra Federation (BDLO) are actively promoted
