General information

We are looking for new members for our 2021 summertour! Are you available between 6 - 21 August (including rehearsals) and would you like to join? Read below information to see how you can apply.

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. (due to covid this can be different in 2021) 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. The summertour in 2021 will include outdoor venues and depending on the current covid situation we will work with covid-tests. Rehearsals will take place indoor.

Performance at the DOA on Januari 7th 2018
