Hello, welcome at the summer international orchestral academy
Filarmonietta Praga 2016!

This musical event is a two-week intensive course of playing in the orchestra. It gives the opportunity of orchestral experience to young musicians, future professionals, but also to enthusiastic amateurs of all age categories. Under coaching of experienced professional players, members of the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra and their guests, you can spend one, two or three weeks of intensive orchestral studies in the atmosphere of summer Prague, one of the European leading musical centers, and one of the most beautiful cities in the world. The played repertory is selected from the “pure jewels” of the Czech orchestral music in combination with other attractive pieces of the world’s music “treasure”.

The festival orchestra is a full symphony, and it provides a good opportunity for participants to learn and perform Classical Czech music on a high level. Several of the principals are professionals, employed by the Czech Philharmonic orchestra and other professional orchestras in the country. The conductor, Jiří Havlík, is a French horn player in the Czech Philharmonic, so for all participants who come from other countries, it should be interesting and beneficial to perform the great Czech composers such as Dvořák, Smetana, Janáček, Martinů, etc., the way they are played in the Czech Republic. One should allow half a day (every day) for participation in the orchestra (or a full day if choosing only orchestra). This may include sectional rehearsals, all strings, all winds, and the complete orchestra. A list of the works planned will be given to participants with ample time to study and prepare the parts before arriving in Prague.

Orchestra is offered during each of the two weeks in Prague. The program contains three self-standing programs, so one needs to register for the specific weeks in the application.
Antonín Dvořák-Stabat Mater – week 1
Antonín Dvořák-Rusalka – week 2
Bedřich Smetana-My Country – 2 weeks program (week 1 and week 2)

Furthermore, musical studies will be accompanied by the possibilities of sightseeing at the most famous historical and cultural places of Prague and its surrounding.
