Streetsymphony orchestra Ricciotti ensemble is meant for everyone and brings music where and whenever possible. We think being able to listen to live symphonic music should be possible for everybody because we know what music can bring about. Music connects, makes you free, makes you move, think and feel. Music achieves beautiful things in a society and it is in the DNA of this orchestra to pro-actively perform the most beautiful and varied repertoire in places where people live, work and relax.

Hall of Fame

The Hall of Fame is a brand new project that will map the enduring power of the Ricciotti and offers advantages for those ex-members that still propagate the Ricciotti philosophy. To start it off, the following people/ couples/groups will share with you where they are now and what they still practice from their experiences with the Ricciotti.

Support us

The help of others is essential for the Ricciotti to execute its mission. Our principal that every performance should be free of charge, means that the money for three tours a year needs to come from elsewhere. Fortunately, for many years now, the Ricciotti can count on many small and some major financial partners. The Fonds voor de cultuurparticipatie and het Amsterdams Fonds voor de kunsten have been recognizing the importance of the Ricciotti for our society for many years now and have promised to continue their financial support for the next few years.

The Ricciotti today is full of ambition and in order to be able to execute all our plans, we are continually looking for more partners, big or small. Read here about our plans and what we could mean to one another
