Foreword

Derived from one noble dream to unite young Indonesian musicians on a single platform, I proudly welcome back orchestras and ensemble groups as well as big bands from all over Indonesia and abroad to join us in the second annual Indonesia Orchestra   Ensemble Festival (IOEF). IOEF is open for amateur orchestras and ensemble groups who are looking for opportunities to perform at an international festival.

With the main focus in music education, IOEF does not only offer a spectacular open stage where you can share your music, but also provides valuable activities that will expand your knowledge in music; specifically in the world of orchestra and ensemble playing. Moreover, we hope all festival participants will embrace the joy of music while starting new, inspiring friendship between musicians.

IOEF is expected to be the standard for Indonesia’s orchestra and ensemble scene, as well as to motivate young Indonesian musicians to learn and improve themselves continuously. Nowadays, the chance to perform and learn from the professionals is very limited. IOEF was born to facilitate and meet these needs.

The first IOEF, successfully held in September 2016, received more than 20 participating groups from around Indonesia and presented over 20 workshops with more than 3000 participants. You definitely do not want to miss this remarkable festival, as you will get precious moments and beneficial experiences as part of your musical journey!

Get ready to join the fun and excitement. Be part of the history! In Music we TRUST.
