Just as other top orchestras Filharmonie Brno is interested in educating the next generation of outstanding musicians who might in the future become its members. For this reason, the beginning of the 2014/2015 season marked its establishment of Filharmonie Brno Orchestra Academy.
Students and graduates of secondary and higher education music schools from the Czech Republic and from abroad will have the opportunity to expand their education and obtain valuable experience at Orchestra Academy of Filharmonie Brno. The programme will focus not only on orchestral repertoire but by means of a Filharmonie Brno concert series (“Mladá krev” – “Young Blood”) to be held in its hall in the Besední dům, it will also allow members of the Academy to develop their chamber playing skills.
The inclusion of young, talented musicians in Filharmonie Brno will also create many opportunities for the orchestra itself. By founding its own Academy, Filharmonie Brno acknowledges the long tradition of high quality music education in the Czech Republic, and is confident that the Academy will provide a valuable contribution to its further development.
