Join us!

Ethno Catalonia 2021 will take place between 23th July and 1st August, and applications will be opened from 1st March to 31st May!

JOIN OUR SUMMER ORCHESTRA at Ethno Catalonia 2021!

Whether you come from somewhere in Catalonia/Spain or from the other side of the globe, this year we are calling 40 musicians aged 16-30 years to join us for the experience of a life-time, sharing music, and performing at international Summer festivals in the Barcelona region! Read more and apply!

Part of Ethno, international program held in 20 countries

We will be starting our 10-day tuneful journey at our Music Camp in the beautiful scenic Mediterranean town of Banyoles (Catalonia/Spain, 30 min from Girona, 1h from Barcelona), close to a beautiful lake, where you can bathe.

Daily workshops, rehearsals & cultural activities

During the first 6 days, Ethno Catalonia participant musicians will be immersed in both global Folk, World and Traditional music, through peer-to-peer song learning in Daily Workshops & Rehearsals, coordinated by our professional Artistic Leaders, and also in local music.

Our lab will be the most beautiful environment in the region for the group to prepare the final repertoire for the final tour. It all takes place just in front of the Banyoles swimming lake, where participants also stay at a comfortable hostel, reserved only for the Ethno participants. Besides performing and jamming at the main local festival (individual or group performances), there will be other cultural activities and experiences as part of the Ethno program!

Concert tour

You will embark on a final 3-day Final Concert Tour around Catalonia.

A special moment is always Ethno’s final concert, performed back in Banyoles at the main square, celebrating the experience with the locals, big time!

How to apply?

Application form will be available from 1st March. Once your application arrives, our Artistic Leaders will review it, and we will let you know shortly if you have been selected.
