The National Youth Orchestra of Canada (NYO Canada) and the European Union Youth Orchestra (EUYO) join forces for The Frenergy Tour, a landmark collaboration and celebration of friendship, featuring a total of 76 outstanding young musicians. Acclaimed Viennese conductor Sascha Goetzel leads the four-city tour, with music by Rossini, Ravel, Saint-Saëns, Stravinsky, and Wagner, and Canadian composer John Estacio’s Frenergy for orchestra, connoting both friendship and frenetic energy! Fast-rising violinist and NYO Canada alumnus Blake Pouliot joins as guest soloist. This ground-breaking tour is made possible by the support and vision of the Delegation of the European Union to Canada. 
The National Youth Orchestra of Canada (NYO Canada), has enjoyed an iconic reputation as Canada’s orchestral finishing school, providing the most comprehensive and in-depth training program available to our country’s best young classical musicians. Each summer, 100 gifted musicians between the ages of 16 and 28 come together to attend an 8-week intensive training institute followed by a national and international tour. The orchestra is the subject of “That Higher Level,” a new feature-length documentary from the National Film Board of Canada.
The European Union Youth Orchestra (EUYO) is one of the world's preeminent symphony orchestras and has been a Cultural Ambassador for the EU for more than forty years. The Orchestra's legal seat and operational home is in Italy and the EUYO is resident orchestra at its summer home and principal venue partner Grafenegg in Lower Austria. The EUYO is supported by the Creative Europe programme of the European Commission, and by the (currently 28) Member States of the European Union.
The Delegation of the European Union to Canada was established in 1976 and is a fully-fledged diplomatic mission and, as such, the natural contact point in Canada between the EU and the Canadian authorities. It also has a strong public diplomacy mandate designed to enhance the knowledge and understanding of the European Union as well as EU-Canada relations.
