Romanian Youth Orchestra
The youngest Romanian symphonic orchestra was formed in the summer of 2008, in the city of Sinaia, following an initiative from cellist Marin Cazacu with the help of “The Friends of Music – Serafim Antropov”. Its members, aged 19 to 26, are selected from the top performers across the nation. The technical and artistic training is overlooked by maestro Cristian Mandeal.
In order to help meet the need to rise up to the artistic demands and ambitions of the European community for the young generation of Romanian musicians “The Romanian Youth Orchestra- Enescian spirit and European tradition” Project was founded. Some of the grand achievements include the 2008, 2009 and 2010 concerts held for the “Enescu and his music” International Festival in Bucharest, Brasov and Busteni.
The performances at the Romanian Athenaeum under the lead of conductor Cristian Mandeal lit up the stage on December 5th & 9th 2009, March 4th, May 29th and August 18th 2010. Similarly the “Eurovision-Young musicians” concert on March 14th and October 25th achieved together with “Princess Margareta of Romania Foundation “, conducted by Horia Andreescu, confirmed the high expectations for this project.
