The Metropole Orchestra

The Metropole Orchestra

It’s 1945. The Dutch Government and Royal Family take an important decision from their exile in London. They decide that the Netherlands needs an orchestra to bring pleasure and hope to the Dutch people. Musicians are gathered from around Europe to create a modern orchestra with a fresh new sound. This is the start of the Metropole Orchestra. Over the next decades, the Metropole Orchestra developed a reputation as a full symphony orchestra with an integrated big band.

The  Metropole Orchestra plays jazz, pop, cabaret, film scores and world music, instead of classical music. It has shared the stage with stars such as Ella Fitzgerald, Dizzy Gillespie, Bono and Steve Vai. The orchestra is a regular guest on The Netherlands’ main stages for popular music such as the Amsterdam Paradiso and de Melkweg, and has played on many festivals including North Sea Jazz, Holland Festival, BBC Proms and Musikfest Bremen.

As the world’s leading pop and jazz orchestra, the Metropole Orchestra is always looking to experiment and to be part of spectacular performances such as concerts in highway tunnels with Junkie XL or participation in the world’s first crowd funded opera videogame!

The Metropole Orchestra moves audiences. That is, after all, the real purpose of music.
