It has 94 permanent members, which enables it to perform the entire symphonic repertoire from the classical period to the 21st century. The orchestra has been part of Fundação Casa da Música since July 2006.
Remix Ensemble is Casa da Música’s contemporary music group. Since its debut in 2000, the group has already performed the world premieres of more than eighty five works.
Orquestra Barroca Casa da Música was formed in 2006 to perform Baroque music from a historically-informed perspective.
Coro Casa da Música gave its first concert in 2009 under the direction of Paul Hillier, its principal conductor.
Em 2007 a Fundação Casa da Música deu novo impulso à política de fomento à criação musical com a introdução de residências artísticas e pedagógicas dos mais prestigiados compositores dos nossos dias, bem como a oportunidade aos compositores portugueses para que as suas obras tenham palco e divulgação internacional.
Get to know the education service activities
The Music Performers’ Training Course reaches two digits with an extraordinary momentum that can’t be quantified. Since 2005, more than 150 participants have taken part in this programme, which translates their active involvement into dozens of artistic and community projects, reaching thousands of people. Then there’s the fractal effect: whenever someone from the course takes their new skills to a community or onto the stage, it means reliving their emotional work with other people. We know this because good children come back to Casa da Música and are frequent visitors. Some of them even stay here...
Established in order to make up for a lack of musical education in Portugal, which was in need of a more extended approach, the course enables musicians to invigorate their activities with communities and to lead creative interventions. Improvisation, interaction and teamwork form a programme of musical creation and encouragement which starts with an artistic appraisal of participants.
Structured in four modules, linked to artistic and performance projects with groups from different social and cultural contexts, this activity runs from October to the start of July, culminating, as ever, with Sonópolis. In this city festival, which exhibits the various community interventions carried out during the academic year, the trainees also perform as a music ensemble. This energy has been present since the first edition, and it is with this dynamic that this clearly successful training event continues, guided by internationally recognised creators, such as Paul Griffiths, Sam Mason, Tim Steiner and Peter Letanka.
