Established by the Adam Mickiewicz Institute in 2011, the I, CULTURE Orchestra (ICO) is an ensemble of outstanding young musicians from Poland and the Eastern Partnership member states – Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine.
The mission of the I, CULTURE Orchestra is to foster positive change in the cultural and social development of the countries of Eastern Europe and Southern Caucasus through enterprises of the highest artistic quality. Above all, the I, CULTURE Orchestra is an exquisite ensemble. This year’s edition of the project featured instrumentalists selected from among several hundred candidates. The I, CULTURE Orchestra is also an initiative of enormous social potential, a laboratory of civic education, cooperation and understanding which transcends every division.
The Orchestra’s success has been founded on the universal principles of solidarity, integration and friendship. As an educational project, the ICO enables young talents to change their perspective on their respective artistic surroundings and hone their skills under the supervision of eminent instrumentalists of some of the world’s most prominent orchestras.
A flagship project of the Foreign Cultural Programme of the 2011 Polish Presidency of the EU Council, the ICO was inaugurated with a tour of Europe’s most prestigious concert halls (London, Berlin, Brussels, Madrid). The second edition of the project featured concerts in the capitals of the Eastern Partnership member states, while the third ICO tour included visits to Scandinavian and Baltic countries as well as Ukraine.
