The Colombian Youth Philharmonic is a source of national pride that transcends boundaries and makes the world vibrate to the sound of each note. This social project led by the Bolivar Davivienda Foundation, has had the honor of working with important organizations such as the YOA Orchestra of the Americas, the National Batuta Foundation, the Schools of Music of various universities, as well as with different media outlets, reflecting Colombia's musical growth and maturity. In 8 years, the Youth Philharmonic Orchestra has empowered more than 450 young musicians between the ages of 16 and 24, and has inspired 450 thousand more who dream of becoming excellent musicians.
"La joven", as it has been nicknamed by its followers, breeds a sense of pride in the entire country and draws it towards symphonic music. The orchestra's musicians have strengthened their talent through large-scale orchestral practice. This has enabled a high level of artistic quality deserving of recognition from music critics, the press, and an international audience in the United States, Brazil, Germany, Austria, and Central America.
Thanks to an innovative mise-en-scène, the orchestra has moved audiences in famous venues around the globe. It has thus become a world-class platform that reflects the efforts of institutions and individuals who work towards developing symphonic music in Colombia. Furthermore, young musicians get a chance to complement their artistic education in on-site events held throughout the year. The aim of these events is to reach out to professional musicians from well-known orchestras, such as the Wiener Philharmoniker, Mahler Chamber Orchestra, Houston Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre des Champs-Elysées, and hr-Sinfonieorchester.
