The World's Leading
Pop & Jazz Orchestra

Winner of 4 Grammy Awards
20 Grammy Nominations


The Metropole Orkest has been part of the Dutch broadcast system from 1945 till 2013. As of September 2013 the orchestra has to generate 50% of its own income. This is a challenge for the orchestra and cannot succeed without your help.

Friends of the Metropole Orkest contribute to the following efforts:

  • educational efforts with projects like Metropole op School;
  • the Metropole Academy for students from all over the world who study at Dutch conservatories;
  • new projects with which we focus on reaching young and divers target audiences;
  • keeping the rich heritage of non-classical music alive and accessible for all.
