   NPO World Federation of Amateur Orchestras(NPO WFAO)

The certified NPO WFAO was created in December 2007 through the initiative of WFAO (World Federation of Amateur Orchestra).WFAO was founded in 1998 as an extension of the World Youth Orchestra Conference of 1991.

WFAO’s purpose is to promote orchestral practice for all members of society and to facilitate exchanges between the numerous amateur orchestras in the world. Its activities continue up to this date.
The certified NPO WFAO was founded to provide WFAO with solid administrative support. That support extends beyond national frontiers. NPO WFAO’s support is open to all those who requests its help or are willing to provide assistance.

NPO WFAO intends to amplify the worldwide activities of WFAO especially in helping regions in the developing world, such as parts of Asia or Africa to set up their own organizations and, as such, NPO WFAO aims extending orchestral activities all over the world.

NPO WFAO’s purpose is to contribute and extend, through orchestral practice, all the educational activities in the world, be it youth, adult, or life-long educational programs.

Sharing orchestral practice and promoting exchanges between players or orchestras all over the world crosses language, race, customs and cultural barriers in general through the common language of music because the music scores of Mozart or Beethoven remain the same and can be shared by all art lovers in the world, thus improving universal understanding. It is by contributing to common understanding beyond political, cultural, racial and language barriers that NPO WFAO intends to contribute, ever so little, to peace in the world.
