OrchestrAMATA is a unique orchestra academy for dedicated amateur musicians. Playing side-by-side with top professionals from leading orchestras such as Tonhalle Zürich, Philharmonia Zürich, and Luzern Sinfonieorchester, the members of OrchestrAMATA will prepare an outstanding program of symphonic highlights.
During an intense week of rehearsals, the participants will be immersed in a highly-inspiring working atmosphere, guided by veteran orchestral players of the highest caliber. Not only will they profit from the experienced leadership in the ensemble setting, but also from one-on-one coachings during sectionals. Technical guidance, practical tips, personal insight, and anecdotal extras from the fascinating world of symphonic playing will round off this all-encompassing experience and give the participants a rare inside look into the inner workings of successful orchestral playing. The program will be presented in a final celebration concert within the festival setting.
The rehearsal week will be completed with an attractive array of trips and guided tours to the spectacular surroundings of Ruse. The social program is completely at the participants’ choice and open to their significant others as well.
