The Orpheon Foundation harbours a collection classified as unique in the world. The sound produced by the instruments of the collection represent a living and endearing cultural patrimony, which we endeavour to share with a wider public throughout the world. In recognition of the significance of the collection and its work, the European Commission for Culture awarded Orpheon in 2007 a substantial grant as part of its cultural projects in music, thus making possible the realisation of a series of exhibitions, concerts and courses. This year, 2009, we will have presented exhibitions in Basauri, Spain, Lunéville, France, Cuenca, Spain and Shanghai, Peking, Suzhou, China.
We would hope that you, too, will be interested in bringing the collection to your city or region, for the pleasure of professional musicians, instrument-makers, as well as lovers of music of all ages. Please contact us for further details.
