General info:


Based on the belief that music is a universal language that connects, Orchestre Partout has been making music with asylum center residents (with or without residency permit) and Dutch colleagues since 2010. In this way we contribute to a colorful society in which everyone can develop their musical talent and in which every voice counts and is heard. Due to the continuity and layers of the program, Orchestre Partout has grown into a breeding ground for musical talent from all parts of the world, from non-professional to professional.
