"In any profession, the move from student to practitioner is always difficult and if you are a talented young baroque musician, difficult might sometimes seem like impossible. The problem is one of experience: to work with a top orchestra you need experience, but you can’t get the experience you need without working with a top orchestra. EUBO bridges this ‘experience gap’.
Every year EUBO invites 100 talented young baroque musicians from across Europe to take part in one of the three-day audition courses. The 29 successful candidates, usually from at least 13 EU countries with an average age of 24 years, then spend six months together, training, touring and performing throughout Europe and further afield under the world’s leading baroque specialists.
At the end of each year, the students of EUBO move on into the professional world and the whole process from audition to graduation, begins again. EUBO has been so successful in its mission that there are now former EUBO students in every major professional baroque ensemble in the world, including, for example, The Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra, Les Musiciens du Louvre, English Concert, Europa Galante, Academy of Ancient Music, La Petite Bande, The King's Consort, Concerto Copenhagen and Les Arts Florissants.
