The European Orchestra LABoratory aims to grow the role of orchestras in society by taking music closer to people.

EO LAB II evolves from EO LAB I where four orchestras focused on new formats to reach non-traditional concert goers.

To achieve a new type of audience development, EO LAB II inverts the traditional top down orchestra management model to release the potential of individual musicians.

Selected musicians  become project leaders (with strategic responsibility and funded resources) in targeted communities, collaborating with community ambassadors to bring orchestras closer to society.

Orchestra managers are exposed to new ways to collaborate with their musicians and audiences.
