The curtain has fallen for the Theater orchestra but they continue in a new form, the Flevoland Philharmonic Orchestra (FlePhO). The Theater Orchestra was started in 2016 by honorary conductor Hans Welle as a project orchestra for adults. The orchestra accompanied productions of theater companies, choirs, operetta associations, etc. The basic line-up was that of a chamber orchestra and participants were expected to have a very high level of playing.
The number of rehearsals differed per production. The intention was that participants mastered the pieces after a single rehearsal in order to work with e.g. singers during a next rehearsal.
Starting 2023/2024 the Theater Orchestra continues as the FlePhO. Curious about the way the FlePhO works? Have a look on the website of the Flevolands Philharmonisch Orchestra.
