Orchestre Ostinato Ushers in Collaborative Leadership

Orchestre Ostinato

Orchestre Ostinato, France’s prestigious young musician training orchestra, introduces a fresh twist to its leadership with a team of five renowned professionals at the helm.

An Evolution in Leadership

Orchestre Ostinato, celebrated as a nurturing ground for musicians between the ages of 18 and 25, takes an innovative step forward. Breaking the convention of a single Artistic Director, the orchestra welcomes a unique collective of five luminaries: Jean-François Heisser, Chloé Dufresne, Julien Leroy, Anne Gastinel, and Pierre Fouchenneret.

Roots and Aims

Birthed in 1997 under the vision of Jean-Luc Tingaud, Gilles Demonet, and inspired by Manuel Rosenthal, Orchestre Ostinato stands as a beacon for 80 budding talents. The orchestra, responsible for 20-30 annual concerts, ardently preps these musicians for their eminent careers in professional orchestras.

With its shift to a leadership collective, there’s a keen intention to diversify their work. Ranging from baroque to contemporary tunes, ensuring inclusivity of opera, chamber music, concerti, and more in their offerings.
