Jong Metropole has been made possible as a result of a unique cooperation between Keep an Eye Foundation and Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds (Prince Bernhard Culture Fund). These two funds have joined forces to maximise their support for young talented artists and musicians in the Netherlands. We are most grateful for their continued commitment to Jong Metropole throughout the years.
Besides supporting the partners organising Jong Metropole, both funds each support the special talent of one individual. Keep an Eye Foundation awards an annual prize to one of the orchestra members who stands out for his or her contribution to Jong Metropole. Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds grants a composition assignment to the most talented Dutch young composer, arranger, conductor or band leader of the year. You can read more about both awards on Keep an Eye Outstanding Talent Award and Rogier van Otterloo Award.
