Wonderfeel contributes with conviction to the professional growth of young musicians. The Wonderfeel Festival Orchestra, consisting of advanced conservatory students, is conducted by Johannes Leertouwer and has been playing at Wonderfeel every day since 2016. Camille Thomas, Van Baerle Trio, Aidan Mikdad, Anastasia Kobekina, Lars Wouters van den Oudenwijer and Simone Lamsma have performed solo with the orchestra. In 2020 the Wonderfeel Festival Orchestra performed with soloist Luka Okros in the main hall of TivoliVredenburg.
"Wonderfeel's position means that soloists of exceptional quality come. For the young musicians this is enormously inspiring. The open attitude of the orchestra is answered by the soloists. There is a real interaction."Johannes Leertouwer
