From January to June, pupils of music schools all around the Czech Republic meet with experienced colleagues from the Czech Philharmonic. In preparatory rehearsals under the conductors Ladislav Cigler and Robert Kružík, they face the challenges of the individual parts, and they also experience the thrill of ensemble playing, gaining inspiration and experience from the Czech Philharmonic players, and learning to play as a group even in their free time outside of rehearsals. During the concluding workshop, the orchestra polishes the programme with conductor Petr Altrichter in the Dvořák Hall.

“Even just the chance to play in such a big group was amazing, because you can’t compare it with playing in a little orchestra of twenty players. Being a part of something so big and powerful…words can’t describe it. It’s the same with an audience member just listening to the music feeling like a person who dreams of flying. But the moment you are in the middle of that music, you become a part of it, and you take off!”

“I forgot about myself and was just breathing with the others… During the applause I had tears in my eyes, and I had to fight them back, and then that evening the tears came back again, because I was sorry that it was over, and that it would not be repeated. I wanted to experience that feeling again, to play endlessly, and never stop… Just to remain in that amazing state when somehow the whole universe came together for me.”

“With every bow stroke, every puff on an oboe, every tympani stroke, we are finding our way in the orchestra. That journey is the process by which we are all discovering ourselves and each other and trying to tune up together… The message I have come away with is that music is made by beautiful people, and through music you find beautiful friends.”
