Do you dream of playing on a stage such as the Victoria Hall with the musicians of the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande?

Try your luck and join this 100-person symphony orchestra combining 70 amateur musiciens and 25 musicians from the OSR for an exhilharating programme to be performed with conductor Philippe Béran on 24th June 2022 at the Victoria Hall, as part of the Fête de la Musique

70 amateurs will be recruited according to an application form during the autumn and will have the opportunity to prepare, from January to June 2022, an exhilarating symphonic program with 25 OSR musicians under the direction of Geneva conductor Philippe Béran.
The adventure will culminate in a major concert with more 100 musicians as part of the Fête de la Musique on June 24, 2022.

For once, YOU will be the OSR!
