Welcome to the website for Triorca

Details announced for Triorca 2, July 2016.

After the great success of ‘Triorca’ in 2013, we are looking forward to another exciting orchestral project in Germany.

We are delighted that we can now confirm Triorca 2 will take place in Neuwied Engers, Germany from 21st  – 27th July 2016. We will be performing two concerts on Monday 25th July at the Landesmusikakademie, Neuwied-Engers and Tuesday 26th July in the Gorreshaus, Koblenz. Our principal conductor will be Nicholas Daniel with Andrew Morley as Assistant conductor. For more details on programme, visit the news page.

Triorca is a new international youth orchestra made up of young musicians from Norfolk, England, Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany and Vojvodina, Serbia.  Triorca gave its first concerts in Koblenz (July 2012), Novi Sad (December 2012) and Norwich and Aldeburgh (April 2013) to great acclaim. The orchestra will next perform in the Germany in July 2016.

Over 100 talented young musicians from Norfolk, Germany and Serbia are involved in Triorca, coming together for residential courses and concerts in each country, sharing their experiences and different cultural backgrounds. They will learn together and from each other, using the international language of music.

The musicians are from:

  • Norfolk County Youth Orchestra, Norfolk, England
  • Isidor Bajic Music School, Novi Sad, Serbia
  • Landesjugendorchester and Landesmusikgymnasium, Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany

Triorca's Artistic Director is the international virtuoso oboist, Nicholas Daniel.

Triorca is partly funded through the EU Cultural Programme with support from Norfolk County Council's Music Service, Britain, Isidor Bajic Music School, Novi Sad, Serbia and the Landesjugendorchester, Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany.

Louis de Bernieres Picture"One of the great things about the arts is the way that they foster friendships and collaborative projects all over the world and across all cultures. These networks, in their own small way, help towards the harmony of nations, and, artistically speaking, what could be more important than the constant refreshment brought about by cross-fertilisation? Serbs get to hear Greensleeves and a landler, perhaps, and Brits and Germans get to hear a Serbian circle dance. You pick up technical tips. Everyone is enriched. This new project has made me wish I was young again, and good enough to play in an orchestra!"
