“Educa” is an educational programme aiming at a student and family audience. The main goal is to bring musical content closer to the youngest. Driving young people towards a musical education is an essential step for their personal development, both at school and in society at large.
The project Acadèmia Simfònica was created in 2016, with the following objectives: to encourage orchestras amongst the young music students in the balearic islands; to further their musical knowledge from the experience of learning first-hand what an orchestra is; and also to bring music students closer to a professional orchestra. Their first participation was with gustav mahler’s symphony no.2, “resurrection”.
The project Petita Simfònica was born in 2017, seeking to encourage children into symphony music and to shorten the distance between the world of the orchestra and the youngest audience. The project focuses around a campus, where professionals will be in touch with the infant musicians to create a working space, in cohabitation, which finishes with a public concert. Previous to the camp experience, musicians from the osib have been meeting the students around the island, where students and teachers at the selected music schools and conservatories.
For some years now, the osib has been running this sort of initiative, in order to consolidate the educational goals and approach the orchestra to young students, while also establishing a more involving and close relationship between audience and orchestra. The project promotes live musical experiences, by introducing them to masterpieces of the history of music, the instruments that will be part of the orchestra in the selected pieces and the language of the scores.

The programme digs deeper into musical knowledge, in order to promote and facilitate the attendance of teenagers to a concert and thus generating synergies across society.
