Welcome to the Amadeus website

The Amadeus Orchestra is one of the world's foremost training orchestras for young professionals and music students. They meet several times a year for coaching at the highest level. The Amadeus has helped launch careers with every major British orchestra, and others as far afield as the Boston Symphony and the Hong Kong Philharmonic, and their concerts have become renowned for their quality and vitality.


2015 marks the Amadeus Orchestra's 25th birthday

To celebrate, we gave two performances of Mahler's 8th Symphony, the so called 'Symphony of a Thousand'. These took place in Poole and Exeter back in July and shook two packed houses to their foundations!
