The Portuguese Academic Orchestra and the Portuguese Academic Choir were created with three main objectives:

1. Give opportunity for non-professional musicians to play and sing in an orchestra.

2. Give the possibility to professional or university level musicians to play solo in an orchestra or direct a musical piece if they are studying conducting. In order to further support our students we have a partnership with the school Conducere.

3. Represent Portugal in the International Federation of Amateur Orchestras.


Music Classes

Our music classes focus on the continuous learning of a chosen instrument. Our main goal is to teach in a complete manner and to follow a gradual approach, suited to each musician’s needs and level of expertise.

OAP and CAP can also help you to develop your artistic and technical capacities in an orchestra. We want to give you the opportunity to put into practice what you are learning each day.
