Regeneration is a very crucial thing in the world of education in any field. It is to my utmost pleasure for having been a part of the Festival Faculty of IOEF 2016, in that I was given room to share some things about Performance and Pedagogy to young musicians and parents. With the hope that this festival may be held on a regular basis so that young musicians will acknowledge that there is room to explore their musicality, while being tended by their Parents / Government / Private, Indonesia will eventually reap versatile young musicians who can compete in the international world.

I love to support IOEF because it brings a wide spectrum of ensemble and orchestra experience to those who love music. It is exciting and full of knowledge. The speakers, educators and the musicians involved have their own strength that adds the variety of knowledge and performance we can all enjoy.

It was our honor to receive the Best Group Performance Award in IOEF 2017. It was a valuable experience for us to be part of the festival. It gave us the chance to share and interact with other music groups in Indonesia as well as having a better understanding of the current state of the local music. Our participation in this event not only further enhanced our confidence in performing, but also widened our spectrum of audience. Moreover, this event helps to bring us a sense of achievement while enjoying ourselves performing. We strongly believe that this event has a great impact on the growth of the local bands.

It was a great experience for our students to perform among other orchestra participants chosen in IOEF 2016. It increased the confidence as well as the motivation of young musicians to perform in public expressing their skills and emotions through music.
BINUS Music Society
As young people in the music industry, we are thrilled IOEF was here. We usually only perform in one community and that was it, but now we have a broader field with an audience that has more variety. Really excited to be appreciated by multiple communities and other works of music, even more with the Best Performer award at IOEF 2016, where we got to show that traditional music can be just as good as Western instruments. We hope this event continues to be held annually and can keep reaching for broader ranges of creative works.

It was amazing to see how everyone involved was truly inspired by the idea of creating a festival which may be accessible and enjoyable for everyone, regardless of their social background. I am firmly convinced that the festival will continue to grow, and shape the musical landscape of Jakarta and Indonesia significantly.

The Meet the Orchestra program was an awesome experience for me because I got to know people in TRUST, but also people from other orchestras. I made really good friends and that helped me feel comfortable playing on stage with them. It was such a good opportunity to get out of your comfort zone and meet awesome people!

I was willing to come to Jakarta from Semarang, just because an event like IOEF is so rare. It was such an honor for me to play with one of the renown orchestras in Jakarta, also to share the stage with world-class musicians. I had many valuable experiences in playing music, and that music isn't just about technique, but also about discipline, cooperation, and effort.
