Orquestra Metropolitana de Lisboa
The METROPOLITANA is an innovating project at an international level for the connections it establishes between musical education, orchestra practice and community service to several levels of intervention. Here, we have around 100 teachers and 650 students sharing the same space. Moreover, the Orchestra maintains a permanent activity, counting on it's 40 interpretants to constitute the core of the teacher's staff in the school. Several other parallel projects take place in this space: technical training (eg: Music in hospitals), workshops, master classes and exhibitions. METROPOLITANA is overall an everyday place of constant musical and cultural activity, from 7h30 to 24h00.
