Programme & planning

Jong Metropole organises two projects each year: a Spring Tour (usually in March) and a Summer Tour (July/August). During these projects, Jong Metropole members get together for an intensive rehearsal period followed by a series of concerts in The Netherlands and sometimes (in case of the Summer Tour) abroad. 

The projects below are currently being prepared:

Spring Tour 2021

During the Spring Tour, Jong Metropole performs in several (pop) music halls throughout the Netherlands with an innovative and eclectic programme. The orchestra presents recent repertoire and cooperates with contemporary bands and artists. This year will be different than usual due to the measures surrounding COVID-19.
