Music is a language that unites, regardless of origin, culture and language. From this idea Orchestre Partout started the first music workshop in 2010, in refugee centre Alkmaar. Over the years, we have developed a successful program.
- Weekly music workshops in refugee-centres and concerts across the country
Orchestre Partout organises weekly music lessons and rehearsals inside the refugee centres in Amsterdam, Dronten, Heerhugowaard and Den Helder. Our ‘musicroom’ is a lively meeting place in the centre. In the three-stepped program -lessons, rehearsals and concerts- participants can develop their musical skills. Professional musicians teach guitar, piano, percussion and singing. As soon as participants reach a solid basic understanding of music, they are invited to join in band rehearsals and concerts.
- Annual family-concert Mundo Sonora
Besides its regular activities, Orchestre Partout organizes annual family-concerts named: Mundo Sonora. In each city were we organise music-workshops in the refugee centre we organise a festive family concert in the theatre. Musicians from the city play together; the international musicians from Orchestre Partout with local music ensembles and orchestras.
- Professional festivalband Étoiles Électriques
Orchestre Partout is producer of the professional festivalband Étoiles Électriques. This Amsterdam based band combines Arabic, Kurdish and Persian music with funk and soul. etoileselectriques.nl
