The performances (Berlioz and Liszt) of the Youth Orchestra and the "Orient Express" of the Youth Ensemble are now on YouTube. This week follows Bruch and the encore Fred Saeijs .....
Reaction of Frederieke Saeijs about her most successful performance with the Viotta Youth:
"I forgot during the performance at all that I was with a young amateur orchestra playing ... I felt free and the orchestra went fully with me in the musical flow of Bruch, just like a good professional orchestra. So hats off to all members of Viotta. A dear and cherished memory! "

On November 23, 2014, the Youth Orchestra gives a concert with former Viotta member Frederieke Saeijs as soloist in the 1st Violin Concerto by Max Bruch.
"I was 12 when I was in the Viotta Youth Orchestra (at the 3rd violins) and was breathless of Janine Jansen in the Bruch Violin Concerto. She was 13. I remember that I could not play because it was just too nice to listen to! On my 16th, for the first time in my life, I perforned as soloist with an orchestra and that was .... Viotta! Very special, so to repeat the same experience after almost 20 years.
They are timeless memories for me! "
