Indo-European Youth Orchestra (IEYO) is the first India-based Chamber/Youth orchestra that has performed in Europe. The first concert took place on 18th August 2019 at the Danube Palace hall in Budapest, Hungary. After the Pandemic, IEYO once again resumed its collaboration with Europe and performed at the Festetics Palace and ASCC – Embassy of India in August 2022. It was the second edition of the Concert project to Hungary. 

In 2023, IEYO performed at the ASCC – Embassy of India on 12th August 2023 and at the Royal Palace of Godollo on 14th August 2023. Indo-European Youth Orchestra is the first India based chamber and intercultural music ensemble to perform in these events in Europe. 

IEYO always invites young and senior musicians from various nationalities in its concerts, other than from India, IEYO had young talents from South Korea, Australia, UK, the US, and Hungary in the ensemble at its respective concerts.It goes without saying, Indo-European Chamber/Youth Orchestra has successfully made a mark for itself on the map of global chamber/youth orchestras. Our young musicians indeed came back home with a treasure of knowledge, experience, and motivation unparallel to anything. We are extremely glad for the life changing contribution we could make to the lives of these young performers.

Our performance repertoire has a unique line-up of orchestral pieces from the National Song of India – Vande Mataram, Indian Raga based pieces composed by Maestro Michael Makhal, and also, works of legendary European composers like Mozart, Vivaldi, Elgar and Brahms.  IEYO is renowned for its intercultural musical repertoire and performance approach and the ensemble desires to inspire western musicians around the world to join the ensemble in their international concerts, and explore Indian classical music as well as enjoy playing Indian classical Raga based original compositions. 

Young musicians always learn the best when they perform with orchestras, they get inspired by their fellow musicians and get motivated to do music with a true passion. Our main goals for this concert and workshop project are to inspire young talents to fall in love with music and do music to the best of their ability, also, gain invaluable experience from playing in an international concert with musicians from different parts of the world including professionals, and be more confident, creative and also, get trained to be a great team player. We have also added one more rehearsal day (with the Hungarian professional musicians) in the 2024 concert edition.
