Having threatened to cut the orchestra off last year, the EU Commission has now greed a formula to secure the future of the European Union Youth Orchestra.
Under measures to be put forward to the European Parliament, the EUYO will receive 600,000 Euros a year.
‘Together, we have shown that we can find creative solutions by overcoming bureaucratic procedures when it is in the interest of our citizens,’ said the EU president, Jean-Claude Juncker.
The EUYO was founded in 1976 by Joy and Lionel Bryer and is based in London. That may have to change.
