Without the support of our numerous friends and sponsors, the many ambitious projects and tours of the German National Youth Orchestra would be impossible.
The German National Youth Orchestra is primarily funded by the German Federal Ministry for Women, Families, Youth, and the Elderly.
Since 2010, the German Collecting Society for Performing Rights (GVL) has provided significant financial assistance for the orchestra’s activities.
Important sponsors are Daimler AG and DekaBank Deutsche Girozentrale.
The city of Bonn, where the orchestra has its home, has supported the orchestra since 2012.
The German Orchestras Union (DOV) and the German Orchestra Foundation provide continuing financial aid to the orchestra.
Our project partners provide financial and moral support for individual BJO projects.
Expenses for foreign tours and prestigious guest appearances are provided by the German Ministry for Foreign Affairs, the German embassies in the countries involved, and by the Goethe Institute.
Together with the German Music Council’s “Conductors Forum”, the BJO provides scholarships and support for young conductors, who are able to work closely with the orchestra’s Principle Conductors and observe their work. The young conductors also have the opportunity to conduct rehearsals and concerts themselves.
The German National Youth Orchestra is a member of Jeunesses Musicales Germany and received that organization’s “Würth Prize” in 2011.
As part of the Schloß Weikersheim “Young Opera” program, the young musicians of the BJO gain valuable insights into the world of opera performance.
