The Music Collective Amsterdam (MCA) was born as a result of the artistic needs of three musicians based in Amsterdam. Their shared vision seeks to bring freshness, versatility and an actual vision to classical music.
MCA brings to the public the great works of the orchestral repertoire adapted to a reduced formation, discovering new sounds and interpreting them from a dynamic and attractive point of view.
The ensemble also stands out for its flexibility, which allows different formats to be transferred to the concert stage: from works with 1 - 2 musicians to more complex formations of 14 - 15 players.
Based in the cosmopolitan city of Amsterdam, the group also draws on the influences and the different nationalities that make up the group's members. All this is reflected on an artistic level in the programming and work philosophy.
MCA members belong to several of the best orchestras in the Netherlands, such as the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra | Netherlands Chamber Orchestra, Rotterdam Philharmonic and Concertgebouworkest. Its musicians are also to be seen with renown formations, namely the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Frankfurt Opera, Seoul Philharmonic, Freiburger Barockorchester... Their activity leads them to perform in the best theaters and concert halls in the world suchlike Concertgebouw (Amsterdam), Philharmonie (Paris), Musikverein (Vienna), Berliner Philharmonie (Berlin), Carnegie Hall (New York), Teatro Colón (Buenos Aires), Teatro alla Scala (Milan), Elbphilharmonie (Hamburg), Kennedy Center (Washington).
