The Moonlight Symphony Orchestra was founded in December 2015 by Artistic Music Director Isolda Da Costa Soares. The orchestra was created to support and mentor young musicians and to help them develop their skills to a professional level.
One of the biggest focuses for the Moonlight is the composition program ‘the transition of composition from classical to contemporary music is always a very inspiring and exciting experience to us’ says Isolda.
The Orchestra is comprised of many musicians that have graduated from some of Europe’s leading conservatories including the Royal College of Music, Royal Academy of Music, Guildhall School of Music & Drama in the UK, the Conservatorium van Amsterdam and the Music and Arts University of the City of Vienna and The University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna.
The Orchestra’s Choir is comprised of singers trained at St John’s College Cambridge and the Royal College of Music, London.
