Frascati is a story about music.
Foremost, the orchestra wants to bring music to people.
In all their capacities and holding any kind of experience level.
We aspire to do so in an innovative way, specifically offering stage-experience to talented, young and eager musicians.
Frascati is a story about authenticity.
We recognize that every single one of our members – but also our audience – is unique and able to experience in their own way and pace.
Building on this philosophy, Frascati wants to bring diverging perspectives and characters together.
As such, the orchestra aims to be a core community. Love for music and humanity are core.
Frascati is also a story of community.
Ties are formed between our musicians during the act of playing, but also with the people behind the scenes, and eventually, with our audience.
Together, we aim to bring a message of community, in the form of music, to the world.
In short: Frascati is an outlet - of music - to be experienced and loved by every living thing.
