aim | mission | vision


At the core of our pursuit lies the objective to delve into the intricate relationship between music and human emotions. We aim to elucidate how music serves as a natural extension of our emotional experiences, reflecting our ideals stirring our hearts, and inspiring our public that endorse our dreams.


Crafting classical music is a task rooted in preserving cultural heritage and nurturing artistic expression. Through composition and performance, we strive to transcend time, inspire emotions, and unite communities. Our goal is to enrich lives by providing access to the timeless beauty and profound narratives of classical music, fostering a legacy of creativity and appreciation for generations to come.


The ensemble envisions a world where classical music is not just a privilege but a shared joy accessible to all. With a mission rooted in promotion and preservation, they strive to break down barriers and make the beauty of classical music resonate in every corner. Through innovative performances, educational initiatives, and community engagement, they seek to ignite a passion for this art form, ensuring its enduring presence in the hearts and minds of people from all walks of life.

core activities


The primary objective of the ensemble is to develop a range of projects per season, typically three to five in number. Each project is carefully curated and can consist of one, two, or three concerts, depending on the specific requirements of the venue or location of the request. Additionally, the ensemble aspires to expand its horizons and undertake international projects in the near future.


The Music Collective Amsterdam is actively advancing various educational projects aimed at enriching our audience's understanding and appreciation of the music we perform and share. Firstly, we focus on engaging and captivating our audience through immersive experiences that illuminate the essence of our repertoire. Secondly, we are committed to cultivating younger audiences by offering diverse show topics aligned with our core values. For instance, we delve into music history, explore the significance of composers like Gustav Mahler, and showcase the orchestra ensemble as a model for community development, illustrating how it fosters relationships across diverse backgrounds. Additionally, our educational endeavors encompass informative lectures designed to elucidate our daily activities both on and off stage. These lectures provide insights into our performance processes and event preparations, offering audiences a comprehensive view of our artistic journey.
