Dresdner Nachwuchsorchester (DNO)
The musicians from the Dresden Junior Orchestra (Dresden DNO) are gaining initial experience in orchestral playing. The children and adolescents are aged 10 to 16, and the focus is not on musical perfection, but rather on enjoying music and learning how to play together. In recent years, applicant numbers in some registers were much higher than the capacity available, which is why recital auditions are held every summer. Motivation, more so than ability, is the pre-requisite for membership.
The orchestra operates under the artistic direction of Prof. Milko Kersten. After one or more ‘years of study’, the best members have the opportunity to move up to join the ‘big people’ in the DJSO, which they often do.
