The More the Merrier!

EMO provides its students with an opportunity to create music together during the whole duration of the studies. The instrument teacher may direct the student towards an orchestra, ensemble or group of suitable level. The orchestra and other ensemble sessions are included in the term fee.

We have strings and winds orchestras for students of different ages and skill levels. The sessions take place regularly, once a week. The program includes classical pieces and modern, entertainment music.

On top of the orchestra stairs we have the flagship of EMO: the full-range symphony orchestra Tapiola Youth Symphony (TNS) that practices and performs periodically under the supervision of professional conductors and orchestral coaches.

Ebeli Big Band is the youth big band of EMO and Ebeli, the pop/jazz department. More information at Ebeli.

EMOn kamut is the folk music ensemble that welcomes students of all ages and instruments to have fun together.

Different smaller groups are created every year.
