The OF prepares young musicians who have graduated from respected institutions to play a leading role in the most prestigious orchestras, here and abroad.

Three core objectives of the OF: Learn, Innovate and Share

  • Learn: by providing the brightest young musicians with diverse tools — both musical and extramusical — to prepare for a fulfilling and high-level professional career.
  • Innovate: by reinventing the concert format, by performing in unusual settings, using daring new approaches and varying forms, and finally, by combining artistic disciplines that may potentially enhance one another.
  • Share: by promoting the social commitment and community involvement of the OF and its musicians, by seeking new mutually beneficial partnerships, by producing and releasing high quality recordings, and finally by encouraging sharing, open-mindedness and tolerance.
