In June, the Orchestra joins forces once again with the Choir of Clare College Cambridge to perform three concerts to commemorate the start of World War I; the performances will be in Rotterdam (NL), Echternach (LU) and Nantes (FR) on 28, 29 and 30 June 2014. EUBO also began a collaboration with the puppet theatre Favoletta by staging an allegorical tale for children using puppetry and music from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, promoting themes of resolution and harmony. As well as performing the live shows, EUBO recorded the Four Seasons for CD with four young emerging violin soloists, which will subsequently enable the production to be distributed commercially and presented in literally hundreds of schools across Europe.

The European Union Baroque Orchestra will not receive more EU funding until at least October 2014 due to a major change to the way in which it is funded by the European Commission. We need your help to continue our valuable work of supporting young baroque musicians at the start of their careers.
