  „All the members of EFNYO play an important role in their own countries by offering one of the main possibilities for orchestral training. The reasons behind the founding of this federation are many and varied, but can be summed up by the need for co-operation. On the one hand the members of EFNYO have many things in common, ranging from the aims and objectives of our orchestras to the day to day difficulties implicit in organisations of this nature. On the other there are many interesting differences resulting from the different musical backgrounds of each country. The national youth orchestras together represent the large variety of the rich European musical tradition. (...)

By their very definition pre-professional youth orchestras are training the orchestral musicians of the next decades and we therefore consider it both a challenge and our duty to think about and analyse the constant changes that are taking place in musical life, with an aim to preparing the future generations as well as possible for their professional careers. The members of EFNYO feel we have a role to play in the constantly developing process of shaping the future of symphonic music and orchestras, and would like to take part actively by encouraging all types of initiatives within the wide European tradition of symphonic music. (...)

Ever since the establishment of the European Federation of National Youth Orchestras the Wiener Jeunesse Orchester has played a valuable part in this organisation. The Austrian orchestra has always been a promoter of and one of the most active participants in the exchange of musicians, which has been subsidized by the European Union since 1997."

 Arthur van Dijk, Präsident der EFNYO (1994-2001)
