The Ensemble 900 of the Conservatoire of Italian-speaking Switzerland was founded in 1999 by Giorgio Bernasconi, orchestra conductor who died prematurely, as resident ensemble of the season 900presente.

The project has two purposes: to act as a reference point for the spreading of modern and contemporary repertoire in Italian Switzerland and at the same time to give the opportunity to students of the Conservatoire to develop significant expertise in a crucial area for the modern musician.

The ensemble is renewed every year by bringing together the best students of Bachelor, Masters and Advanced Studies of the University School of Music.
