What is EUBO?
The European Union Baroque Orchestra is like no other orchestra: EUBO’s tradition since its foundation in 1985 has been to audition and select new personnel every year. EUBO’s ephemeral existence makes its concerts special: live performances throughout the EU, enjoying all the technical accomplishment of the best young baroque musicians in Europe, allied to an infectious undimmed sense of discovery and enjoyment. EUBO’s touring programme is assisted by sponsorship from The Early Music Shop and the orchestra’s role as a Cultural Ambassador for the European Union is affirmed in perpetuity. Flying the flag for Europe, “EUBO is”, as President José Manuel Barroso says, “a perfect symbol of the power of integration, a subtle and potent instrument of harmonisation between people and nations.”
