Professional music programs at the Abbaye aux Dames
Jeune Orchestre Atlantique
It is the oldest training program of the CCR. Originally, the JOA program consisted of a symphony orchestra course once a year in July. Gradually, this course extended to different courses along the year. Students can apply to one or more of the courses, all centered on the study and practice of the classical and romantic repertoire on period instruments.
Advanced studies program details
Created in 2000, the advanced studies program complements and extends the courses of the Jeune Orchestre Atlantique. It includes 12 courses over two years and aims to discover specific stylistic elements on classical and romantic repertoire on period instruments. A new class for 2004 and 2005 of the Advanced Studies Program will be recruited this year.
Philippe Herreweghe, artistic director and conductor
Jos van Immerseel, guest conductor
Robert Levin, guest conductor
