Project Siebold

A cooperation between T.O.P. Orchestra and Nanagen String orchestra from Tokyo

In the past years, String Orchestra Nanagen from Tokyo gave concerts in the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam three times. In March 2019, they return, this time for a collaboration with the T.O.P. Orchestra. Their visit will be answerd by a visit from the T.O.P. Orchestra to Tokyo in July of the same year. This establishes a unique artistic collaboration between cultures geographically far apart, a great learning opportunity for orchestra members, conductor, soloists and the two orchestras’ boards. The project will be led by conductor Kent Moussault.


  • W. A. Mozart: Sinfonia concertante for violin, viola and orchestra;
