Janáček Philharmonic Orchestra announces audition for
International Orchestral Academy (IOA)
Janáček Philharmonic, based in Ostrava is one of the leading symphonic orchestras of the Czech Republic. Long orchestral tradition, typical bohemian sound and progressive repertoire are very much praised both by local audience and international reviewers. Excellence in performing not only Janáček, but most of the late-romantic to contemporary repertoire is one of the orchestra ‘s strengths. In 2021-22 the orchestra hosts guest conductors such as the chief conductor Vassily Sinaisky or Petr Popelka, Risto Joost, Lionel Bringuier, Andrey Boreyko, Gabriel Bebeselea, and soloists such as Lukáš Vondráček, Bruno Philippe, Danjulo Ishizaka, Nikolay Lugansky, Alena Baeva, and Frederico Colli.
The International Orchestral Academy (IOA) is suitable especially for students and graduates of music performance programmes at university level. The internship is unpaid is hence highly suitable for Erasmus+ recipients.
