The European Union Chamber Orchestra began giving concerts in 1981 as a musical ambassador for the European Union. From 1992 until 2004 it received assistance from the European Commission which enabled the orchestra to tour other continents. It has toured South America seven times and Mexico nine times. Since 2005, the group has concentrated on touring within Europe, and especially within the new member states.
The orchestra is based in Devon, England, and its four musical directors are Jérôme Akoka, Hans-Peter Hofmann, Gergely Kuklis and Matthias Wollong.
