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 75 amateur musiciens and 25 musicians from the OSR for an exhilharating programme to be performed with conductor Philippe Béran on 18th June 2021 at the Victoria Hall, as part of the Fête de la Musique

A new OSR project will come to life this season. It is opened at all amateur musicians who love music, aged between 9 and 89, playing an orchestral instrument for at least 3 years, loving exciting adventures and who have always dreamed of playing with the OSR on the prestigious Victoria Hall stage.

75 amateurs will be recruited according to an application form during the autumn and will have the opportunity to prepare, from January to June 2021, 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 18, 2021.

For once, YOU will be the OSR!
