Samama Fellowship
As chairman of the board, Leo Samama was very involved with the orchestra for more than two terms. And as a father he watches over the entire music life in the Netherlands. Samama is a composer, music scientist, director, writer and member of many boards. We have great respect for his many talents and we are grateful for his significance for the sector. We have therefore chosen to link Samama's name to the trainee trajectory and to call it the Samama Fellowship.
