Joven Orquesta de Cuenca

Founded in 1991, the Joven Orquesta de Cuenca (Spain) brings together young musicians aged between 11 and 30. Its main objectives are the training and professional preparation of its members, as well as promoting knowledge of classical music and youthful coexistence. The majority of its members come from the Conservatorio Profesional “Pedro Aranaz” and the Escuela Municipal “Ismael Martínez” of Cuenca. Some of them have stood out for their virtuosity, having obtained prizes and awards in regional and national music competitions.

As an orchestra in constant renewal, the Joven Orquesta de Cuenca takes classical music to different cities and towns in Cuenca and Castilla-La Mancha. It has performed at various international events, including the Harrogate International Festival (United Kingdom), the Orchestre Giovanili Festival in Florence (Italy), the International Festival of Choirs and Orchestras in Prague (Czech Republic) and the concert held in the Plaza de Santa María Magdalena in Krakow (Poland). During the years 2020 and 2021, despite the pandemic, the orchestra did not lose its enthusiasm and continued working hard. An example of this work is its participation in Alejandro Sanz’s documentary “El mundo fuera” (The World outside), a compilation of videos from 38 countries recorded during the confinement.  It also continued to give concerts, although in smaller numbers and with fewer audiences due to the restrictions imposed by the pandemic. After this difficult period, the Joven Orquesta de Cuenca resumed its concerts throughout the province of Cuenca, offering a dozen performances and again taking part in the Orchestre Giovanili Festival in Florence.
