The Elba Festival Orchestra was born in 2022 as an international symphony group of 40 members residing on the island, meeting for a week of rehearsals and concerts during the Festival. The orchestra is made up of established soloists who are flanked by young musicians: the latter can thus follow an entire week’s training course, exchanging with highly experienced artists and experimenting on diversified repertoires.
The Elba Festival Orchestra 2022 is made up of musicians from 16 nations: France, Spain, Holland, Ukraine, Israel, Italy, Kazakhstan, Portugal, Germany, United States, Georgia, Romania, Belgium, Great Britain, Bulgaria and Switzerland.

The constitution of the orchestra is made possible thanks to the support offered by the Colombian composer, pianist and conductor Arturo Cuéllar.
