The Ricciotti ensemble is the most socially involved orchestra in The Netherlands. As a member you will visit places like a prison or an asylum centre, meet the like-minded or people that hardly know what a violin looks like. You will learn different styles of music, how to present yourself on stage and you will get the unique chance to develop yourself artistically and socially. On top of that, your organising skills will get a boost.
We tour three times a year, almost always during the school holidays. To participate, there needs to be a position available and you need to audition.
A couple of months before each tour, the available positions will be published on this audition page. We will email you the compulsory pieces and we expect you to prepare a solo piece of approximately 5 minutes.
Note that there will be no piano available during the auditions.
