The programme’s professional orientation is put into practice through a number of yearly activities that are open to the general public. Internationally renowned conductors and directors are responsible for the artistic direction of these concerts and productions.
All students obtain roles in the performances produced by the IOA, which include at least one production with piano in the first year and one production with orchestra in the second year of the course. By organising concerts, recitals, public courses and a number of productions the IOA appeals to new, young target groups.
During their studies, students also collaborate in private concerts. These are arranged by individuals and organisations that provide financial support to IOA and/or students.
