About Academy

The project’s mission is to offer young, talented artists qualified leadership and active experience with professional preparation for an orchestral performance including the playing of a selected work in concert. The instructors are chosen from among first-class instrumentalists who perform on concert stages as soloists, chamber players, and members of prestigious symphony orchestras. The artistic supervisor of the entire project is one of the most prominent and distinguished Czech generations of the middle generation, Tomáš Netopil, whose international renown is reflected by his invitations to conduct the world’s leading orchestras.


The graduates of the Orchestral Academy will present themselves as members of the Dvořák Prague Youth Philharmonic on 14 September 2021 at a concert in the Dvořák Hall at Prague's Rudolfinum under the baton of the project’s artistic supervisor, the conductor Tomáš Netopil.
