Libero String Orchestra is a young ensemble founded in 2016 by a group of ambitious professionals in Zwolle, the Netherlands. The orchestra is distinguished by its youthful enthusiasm and energy, high-quality level of performance and unconventional presentation.
The name Libero, meaning ‘free’, represents their goal to play classical music with a modern touch: by heart, liberated from music scores, stands, and without a conductor. The choice to perform by heart allows for the quality of the ensemble to improve, but also favors the contact between musicians and audience. As an orchestra with such a characteristic international nature, their aim to find ways to communicate beyond the standard is also accentuated.
Libero String Orchestra strives to perform in scenarios of different natures: traditional venues, churches, festivals and – most of all – in unfamiliar territory; to bring classical music to places where it is heard too little or not at all. We are certain that there is a place for classical music in modern society, almost everywhere, as long as it is accessible and affordable.
