Orchestra internships NRW (Orchesterpraktika NRW):

The Orchestra Center | NRW offers its students and other NRW master's students the opportunity to gain valuable practical experience in one of the region's professional orchestras alongside their studies. As part of the orchestra internships in North Rhine-Westphalia, students are deployed in such a way that they can continue their studies during this time. The students are supported by a mentor from the orchestra's ranks who prepares the students for the planned works and provides advice and support for all aspects of everyday life as an orchestra musician.
