Orquesta Escuela Emilio Balcarce's biography

Orquesta Escuela  Emilio Balcarce

This pedagogical initiative, created by the City Government’s Ministry of Culture and coordinated by double bass player Ignacio Varchausky, helps bring together different generations of musicians, facilitating the transmission of the cultural legacy of the Great Maestros. Students have the opportunity to play original arrangements of the orchestras of the 1940s and 50s, supported by the experience of great musicians. Since its creation, it has become a meeting and reference point for the new generations. Twelve years later, over 200 musicians from all over the world have played in it. The orchestra was founded by the legendary Emilio Balcarce, directed by maestro Néstor Marconi between 2007 and 2010, and is currently directed by maestro Víctor Lavallén.
