Next EAYO AGM
9 and 10 June 2007
Vaduz, Capital of Liechtenstein
Dear Members and dear Associates,
We are very happy to tell you that we had several positive answers to our letter of 19th October 2006, asking for ideas and solutions for the future of our Association.
Those answers were mainly from our founding members in 1990 with both grown-up orchestras as well as youth orchestras as members: BDLO (Germany), EOV (Switzerland), NSOF in close co-operation with NASOL (Norway). The grown ups are members of the EVL (European Association of Amateur Orchestras). The EVL was founded some years earlier than EAYO and an example for us in Statutes, way of organising General Assemblies etc.
Conclusion: Why waste a lot of energy in closing the books of EAYO as so many positive ideas can be executed in co-operation. The EAYO board is convinced that in closer co-operation with EVL/EAAO we can have a stronger movement.
EVL president Daniel Kellerhals, also president of the EVL founding member Orchester Liechtenstein-Werdenberg, OLW, offers to be the host of the EAYO General Assembly 2007. This is great!!!
Dates: 9 and 10 June 2007, with the possibility of arrival on June 8th.
Location: Vaduz, Capital of Liechtenstein (this is right in the heart of Europe!).
With the objective of exploring areas of common interests and similar goals of the two organisations and to identify synergy potentials, it will be a pleasure for the members of the Board of EVL to meet with representatives of EAYO during their stay at Vaduz. Since EVL brings together a significant number of adult amateur orchestras across Europe, the complementarities of the two organisations are quite evident. The meeting in June 2007 would therefore offer welcome opportunities to discuss ways and means for closer co-operation. (Daniel Kellerhals, 20/12/06).
Official papers (agenda and organisational details) will follow as soon as possible including the invoice 2007.
Please have these dates in your Agenda and be sure to be at this important General Assembly. We are planning an interesting programme including music and we are looking after governmental funding to keep the costs as low as possible.
Cheap flights e.g. of Air Berlin arrive at Zürich Airport, which is 100 km West/North West of Vaduz. Vaduz can easily be reached by public transport from the Airport via Zürich Main Station. The Airport of Friedrichshafen at the Lake Constance is even closer.
We wish you a happy Christmas and lots of inspiration and music in 2007!

Stolen Cello - Please Help
I am appealing for help from your members in being able to provide information regarding a stolen cello.
The cello concerned is a modern one made by Viola Ziessow in 1999, it was stored in a standard Hiscox black hard case which also contained a bow constructed with ivory frog, mother of pearl inlay and dark green windings marked Halstead. It is special in several ways, its uniqueness and its sentimental value to begin with, and the bow was specially commissioned from the maker Chris Halstead..
The cello and bow were stolen on 21st January 2005 from St Johns College in Cambridge and we suspect it was targeted. The matter is in the hands of both Allianz and Cornhill musical insurance and the Cambridge police. If any of your orchestral members have any information regarding the whereabouts of the cello and / or bow; please contact the insurance company, police or myself on my e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org .
Many thanks for any help you are able to give.

A new Jeunesses Musicales World Orchestra is born
June 15th 2004
A new concept of the JM World Orchestra takes root in Valencia, Spain
Jeunesses Musicales International (JMI) is proud to announce the creation of a new Jeunesses Musicales World Orchestra (JMWO), based on a brand new concept that aims to position the JM World Orchestra as the international orchestra of the 21st century.
Valencia, Spain, will become the new home of the JM World Orchestra after its 15-year residence in Berlin, Germany. On 8th June JMI signed an agreement for a 5-year period (2005-2009) with the Minister of Education and Culture of the Valencian government, Mr. Esteban Gonzalez Pons (in the photo with Pierre Goulet, Canada, President of JMI). The orchestra will be supported by the region of Valencia and other contributors, and will benefit as from 2006 from a modern concert hall still under construction, designed by the architect Santiago Calatrava.
In charge of the new management structure are Executive Director Juan José Herrera de la Muela, a Spanish cultural manager and career diplomat, and Artistic Director and Principal Conductor Josep Vicent, a young percussionist and conductor who has worked with major orchestras in Spain and the Netherlands, and who was himself a member of the JMWO in 1992-93. Over the past year JMI carefully studied several possibilities for the creation of a uniquely profiled orchestra, and is confident in its new directors who developed an impressive project plan on all levels: artistic, management and funding.
With its new artistic concept the Orchestra aims to become a worldwide reference for music and art of the 20th and 21st centuries, and promote a fresh approach to the global classical repertoire. Exploration and innovation are the two key words that will guide the musical choices of the orchestra, focusing on classical contemporary music of the last century and encouraging interactions between symphonic orchestra and ethnic, jazz and contemporary non-classical music. The project will also study the 'orchestra as a scenic spaceÓ, developing stage elements and using new technologies for the performances, all part of its concern to make major contemporary works more accessible to a wider circle of listeners and to help create new and younger audiences.
The new profile of the orchestra will also build on its worldwide reputation and past successes. When founded in 1970 by Canadian Gilles Lefevbre, the Jeunesses Musicales World Orchestra was the first international orchestra of its kind. For over thirty years it has brought together thousands of musicians from some 45 countries who now play in leading orchestras and perform as soloists worldwide. The orchestra is recognized for its high artistic quality, and the many distinguished conductors who have led the orchestra in the past (including Leonard Bernstein, Zubin Mehta, Kurt Masur and Yakov Kreizberg) have enabled young talents to learn from the very best. The Orchestra is also known as a symbol of international understanding and peaceful cooperation between nations, and was honored with the title of "UNESCO Artist for Peace" in 1996.
Dag Franzen, Secretary General of JMI, confirmed that 'Learning from the past we are happy to present a unique World Orchestra concept with a transparent and accountable management structure. JMI is looking forward to this new collaboration with the Valencia region and believe that through this new plan this truly international orchestra will offer a unique opportunity for young talented musicians to discover some of the extraordinary music of today'.
The first edition of JM World Orchestra is set for July 2005, with a debut performance in Valencia on 14th July at the Palau de la Msica, followed by a tour in Spain and possibly in neighboring Mediterranean countries. Auditions will be announced in September 2004, targeting young talented musicians all over the world between 18 and 26 years old. . All rights reserved.
