The EUYO performed at the WWI Armistice centennial in Paris
The celebration featured the performance of Ravel's Bolero, given by the European Union Youth Orchestra (EUYO), which included Slovenian musical talent.
The commemoration of the Armistice of 11 November 1918 took place in Paris and was visited by more than 120 foreign dignitaries representing States that fought in the First World War, European institutions, the United Nations and other international organizations. They all met at the Arc de Triomphe. The celebration featured the performance of Ravel's Bolero, given by the EUYO (European Union Youth Orchestra), which included Slovenian musical talent.
In 2018, the Centennial Mission labelled more than 40 international projects in 27 States, including in many countries in Europe (Bulgaria, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Iceland, Italy, Serbia, Spain and more), the Americas (Canada, Mexico, Peru and the United States), Africa (Chad, Mauritania and Tunisia), Oceania (Australia) and Asia (China, India and Thailand). These projects, many of which had a cultural aspect, celebrated the reconciliation of enemy peoples. One example was the international youth orchestra, which was formed for the Centenary of the Armistice.
The EUYO orchestra consists of young international musicinas among which are also Slovene instrumentalists Domen Koren, Andrej Omejc, Luka Mitev, Grega Rus and Tobija Hrastnik. They were all thrilled to play at such an event.
