MusXchange is the international exchange program of the European Federation of National Youth Orchestras (EFNYO). Because the NJO National Youth Orchestra of the Netherlands is a member of the EFNYO, members of the NJO have the opportunity to participate in exchange programs, which aim to introduce the young musicians to other orchestral cultures. MusXchange is funded by the European Commission. More information about the EFNYO can be found on the page about international partners on the NJON website (only available in Dutch).
What does MusXchange offer?
Orchestral projects in the rest of Europe provide musicians from the NJO with additional experience in repertoire, teachers, conductors and concert halls. They provide a glimpse into other orchestral and music cultures and into different forms of music education in other countries. In addition, friendships are made and social and language skills are trained and acquired. Participation in MusXchange is documented and evaluated. Proof of participation can be submitted when applying for professional orchestras in the Netherlands and abroad.
