Amateur Ensembles

As an amateur musician you can join the Orlando Festival with your own ensemble. The Orlando Festival offers a special music vacation on a beautiful location in the South of the Netherlands. In historical Rolduc Abbey you will receive lessons, have access to a rehearsal space, listen to concerts, visit lectures and enjoy a lot of chamber music!

Playing in an ensemble, enjoying concerts and lessons, listening to beautiful chamber music, having interesting conversations with like-minded people: young and old meet at the Orlando Festival!

Overnight stay at Rolduc

All participants reside in Hotel Rolduc, a former abbey, surrounded by beautiful gardens. All hotel rooms and rehearsal spaces are situated within the hotel complex.

All participants and visitors stay on basis of full board and lodging. Everybody meets each other also during mealtimes and not only during lessons, rehearsals or concerts. This contributes greatly to the relaxing and unique Orlando atmosphere.

After the concert all participants, visitors and musicians can get together for a drink in the hotel bar, where one can reminisce over the concert and have interesting conversations.

Amateur musicians of all levels of proficiency are welcome; we only ask for sufficient preparation in order to make the most of the lessons. During the course the ensembles receive lessons from the Orlando musicians. In addition to the ensemble lessons it is also possible to book a private lesson with a musician of your choosing.

You can visit all activities of the festival, not just the two daily concerts but also the master classes and workshops. Every afternoon there is a concert at 16.30 in the Aula Minor. In the evenings there are concerts at different beautiful venues nearby. A bus is available to take you to and from the evening concerts (€ 2,50 p.p )
