Pedagogical concerts from Orquestra do Norte

Orquestra do Norte was founded in 1992 as a project aiming towards the decentralization of music culture, managed by the Associação Norte Cultural. Since 2001 it has its headquarters in Amarante, and to it belong about seventy musicians.

Orquestra do Norte, under a protocol celebrated with the Amarante municipality, annually holds a number of didactic concerts for students of the district’s schools.
Between 2013 and 2016, thirty of these events took place, encompassing children from kindergarten to primary education schools, which are estimated to have amounted to about 5800 participants.
