CREATIVITY AND INNOVATION
Business and culture: a self financing project, which survives thanks to a strategy based on a network of collaborations.
Artistic strategies: promotion of new and peculiar musical works, creation of new compositions, new executive techniques, collaborations with heterogeneous and well known artists.
Project management: creation of projects opening music and art to the civil society. Art becomes a real shared asset.

MOBILITY
The World Youth Orchestra project is founded on mobility. All its activities are based on the movement of young musicians coming from Italy, Europe and all over the world.

EDUCATION, EXPERIENCE AND EXCHANGE OF KNOWLEDGE
To invest in knowledge, in research and professional education is one of the priorities of each institution with ambitions of growth and development. The World Youth Orchestra has amongst its priorities the quality of the education offered in a wider perspective of shared and dynamic exchanges of knowledge and experiences amongst different cultural environments.

WORK IN PARTNERSHIP
The World Youth Orchestra exists and operates thank to a deep and capillary work of partnership with Italian, European and world institutions with a global oriented collaboration view. The project operates at a global level, not forgetting its Italian roots.

CREATION OF VALUES
The World Youth Orchestra project is a workshop of human, artistic and social experiences, where a peculiar work on integration, based on the reciprocal knowledge is carried out.
Music as a universal language is the first link uniting young people coming from wealthy or disadvantaged countries. The discovery of a different from one own life style and a shared and common work become the glue for fostering friendship, the comprehension of reciprocal diversities and the joy to live together.
The young musicians of the World Youth Orchestra, representing the five continents, are live witnesses of our commitment and through their art they bring all over the world a new message of friendship.
