Theresia Youth Orchestra
Theresia  Youth  Orchestra is an international orchestra composed of musicians under 30 years of age coming from the major European schools of early music. The orchestra was founded in 2012 as Theresia Youth Baroque Orchestra (TYBO)  by the publisher Mario Martinoli as part of the high musical specialization initiatives promoted by the Theresia Project. The orchestra offers its young musicians the opportunity to regularly participate in orchestral training internships and master classes under the guidance of internationally renowned artists. The orchestra’s activity focuses mainly on study, in-depth analysis and performance of music written by composers of the classic period (1750-1800), Mozart, Haydn and Kraus in particular. In recent years the orchestra has performed in several Italian cities – Rome, Milan, Bolzano, L’Aquila, Lodi, Padua, Rimini, Rovereto, Dobbiaco – and at important musical Festivals and institutions including the Quirinale Concerts in Rome, the Sagra Musicale Malatestiana in Rimini, the Musiké exhibition in Padua. Since 2013 the orchestra has been a permanent guest of the Bolzano Festival Bozen. Claudio  Astronio, Chiara  Banchini and Alfredo  Bernardini are the permanent conductors of the orchestra for the triennium 2016-2019.
