Welcome to the website for Triorca

The Future...
Following a hugely successful concert residential in Novi Sad in July, Triorca comes back to England in 2018: Open concert hall in Norwich, and the prestigious new concert venue, Saffron Hall, Hertfordshire.

Triorca in Norfolk 2018
Residential Course in Norwich 21/7/18 - 29/7/18
Concert  - 27/7/18 Open, Norwich
Concert  - 28/7/18 Saffron Hall, Essex
Beyond that, we return to Koblenz in 2019, Norwich in 2020, and Novi Sad in 2021 - when it is European City of Culture: perhaps a good excuse for Triorca friends, family and supporters, to see (or re-visit?) this delightful, fascinating city.
NB raising the £30k required for each project round to make this work will as always be hard, but we rely on the goodness and passion of all our sponsors and partners to make the work a little lighter!

Triorca is a new international youth orchestra made up of young musicians from Norfolk, England, Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany and Vojvodina, Serbia.  Triorca gave its first concerts in Koblenz (July 2012), Novi Sad (December 2012) and Norwich and Aldeburgh (April 2013) to great acclaim. 

Over 100 talented young musicians from Norfolk, Germany and Serbia are involved in Triorca, coming together for residential courses and concerts in each country, sharing their experiences and different cultural backgrounds. They will learn together and from each other, using the international language of music.

The musicians are from:

  • Norfolk County Youth Orchestra, Norfolk, England
  • Isidor Bajic Music School, Novi Sad, Serbia
  • Landesjugendorchester and Landesmusikgymnasium, Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany
Triorca is funded by The Triorca Trust a registered charity (Charity no. 1150633) which is committed to providing financial support to enable young musicians from Norfolk, England; Vojvodina, Serbia and Rheinland Pfalz, Germany to take part in Triorca activities.

They are presently seeking sponsorship to help this important work to continue. For more details please email: jrickard@cym.org.uk


Louis de Bernieres Picture"One of the great things about the arts is the way that they foster friendships and collaborative projects all over the world and across all cultures. These networks, in their own small way, help towards the harmony of nations, and, artistically speaking, what could be more important than the constant refreshment brought about by cross-fertilisation? Serbs get to hear Greensleeves and a landler, perhaps, and Brits and Germans get to hear a Serbian circle dance. You pick up technical tips. Everyone is enriched. This new project has made me wish I was young again, and good enough to play in an orchestra!"
