WHAT IS EYMRC?
In August 2018, European Youth Music Week invited along 32 young refugees to create a choir and perform a piece of choral music alongside the symphony orchestra that is formed by the European Youth Music Week orchestra.
This was recreated in Ede in the Netherlands in 2019 working with a similar number of refugees based in Germany.
Take a look at our picture gallery to see the successes of EYMRC.
Please keep visiting our pages to find out what the next chapter will be. Currently we are trying to raise funds to support young refugees with international friendships through music making all year round.
Firty loves singing as part of EYMRC and making new friends.
