In a good orchestra you won't find a single instrument, however small, that is superfluous. For us, too, every supporter is important and indispensable. Have a look through the sections of our ‘friends orchestra’ and chose your own place in it.
The STRING SECTION is prepared for Friends of the Festival (CZK 1,500 and up)
Though string instruments are most numerous in an orchestra, and individuality might seem to get lost among them, as a group they often play the main theme. Your role in the orchestra need not be obvious at first glance, yet without you it would all be impossible.
Percussion instruments have always maintained the proper rhythm of the orchestra and are unmistakable in the symphonic flow. They are the beating heart of a musical organism. Thanks to your help in this section it can't happen that the timpani would sound out of the blue at the wrong moment.
If a flute or bassoon player makes a mistake we hear it right away. Therefore a high-quality orchestra has only top-notch wind players. You can be among them.
Piano, organ, harpsichord, or celesta can change the orchestra’s sound in unexpected ways and enhance it with a unique character. Sit down to a keyboard or manual and give our orchestra wings.
The harp holds a special place among the community of instrumental sections. Its gentle power penetrates reliably even through the massive sound of the whole orchestra. It symbolises the ancient Czech castle Vyšehrad and mythical Czech singers. Let its unique voice be heard.
Are you not satisfied being one of many? Do you prefer to 'play first fiddle'? Welcome to the leading solo players of our orchestra.
