Camerata da Academia de Música de Lisboa

Conductor: Pedro Neves

Camerata da Academia de Música de Lisboa is a string orchestra formed by young musicians, aged between 14 and 18, rigorously selected among the students of the Lisbon Music Academy. Founded in 2007, it was directed by Rui Fernandes, Roberto Valdés, Rui Pinheiro, Pedro Ramos, Filipa Poêjo and, since September 2017, Pedro Neves. This orchestra appears regularly in some of the main Portuguese venues, including Centro Cultural de Belém, Fundação Gulbenkian, Museu do Oriente, Palácio da Ajuda, Palácio Foz, among others. At the international level, it has developed exchanges programmes: in 2015 with the Orquesta Promusica (Malaga, Spain), in 2016 with Barrat Due's Junior Orchestra (Oslo, Norway), in 2017 with Jugend Sinfonieorchester Zürich (Zurich, Switzerland) and, in 2018, with the Dublin Youth Orchestra (Republic of Ireland) and the Trondheim Junior Soloists (Trondheim, Norway). Its repertoire includes works from all periods and musical styles, including the world premiere of a work by the composer Ana Seara.
