New year, new branding, new website!
In contrast to previous years, many of us are even more looking forward to the new year as a new beginning. The IOA, too, had a different script in mind for 2020: this would have been a festive year, concluding in a gala concert together with the NOB to celebrate our 20th birthday. Now we focus on 2021. We will plan a new date for our gala concert in autumn; before that, we have plenty of other productions and concerts on the calendar.
Take a look at our website to check the rich programme, and you’ll notice its new design. We enter a new era. Our youth is behind us; we start this new year full of fresh energy. A generation of talented students will be leaving us, and a new cycle for the next group of young artists will start after summer, looking forward to a promising future, as we do. This is my fervent wish for each of you, on behalf of the entire IOA team – this, and a happy and healthy 2021 as well!
