The Annecy Campus Orchestra was founded by Pascal Escande, artistic director of the festival, in order to shed light on young talents and train them to become orchestral musicians. The perfect opportunity for these music lovers aged 14-24, to learn with world renowned musicians and experience their first emotions on stage.
