Shanghai Orchestra Academy

The Shanghai Orchestra Academy began by a partnership between the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, and Shanghai Conservatory of Music in September 2014. The SOA was founded to bring advanced, post-graduate orchestral training at Master's degree level for talented instrumentalists, providing rigorous training of private lessons, chamber music coaching, repertoire classes, seminars and rehearse auditions. Music Director of the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra, Maestro Long Yu, is the President of the Academy. In October 2017, the EUYO brought together a chamber group of musicians from both the EUYO and the SOA for a series of workshops, rehearsals and a performance to commence the beginning of the exciting three year campaign Experience Europe.
