The Orchestre National d’Auvergne

Period of Coming Tour: Oct 26th-Nov 7th, 2020


The Orchestre National d’Auvergne is known abroad as the French chamber orchestra. It is widely recognized internationally for its musical and artistic quality, nurturing the musical aspirations of its members and receiving warm public acclaim.

The professionnal and musical commitment of its 21 permanent string players and their successive musical directors Jean-Jacques Kantorov, Arie van Beek and Roberto Forés-Veses, spanning over 35 years, has led to innumerable concert tours and a large and varied recording catalogue. However, the orchestra is firmly implanted in the Auvergne and its capital Clermont-Ferrand, being acclaimed by audiences, media and cultural representatives.

The orchestra also assumes an important educative role, sowing the seeds of a deeper comprehension and personal reaction to « classical » music, and reaching out to a widely diversified public.

Roberto Forés-Veses, Musical and Artistic Director since 2012, develops an artistic project having strong local roots as well as a high international musical reputation.
