orkest de ereprijs is the leading ensemble for new music in the eastern Netherlands. The group has made a name for itself both at home and abroad. It initiates new projects, often in co-operation with other disciplines, on both a local and international level. Additionally the orchestra offers a podium for young talent in the annual Young Composers Meeting and in its continuing alliance with the conservatories of The Hague, Rotterdam and Arnhem/Enschede/Zwolle (ArtEZ).
One distinguishing characteristic of orkest de ereprijs is its attitude: the ensemble is inquisitive and is poised to accept musical challenges and experiments. The strength of the orchestra is its approach to new music, introducing audiences to high-quality contemporary music while preserving its accessibility to the general public.
