Mode of study
Prerequisites and co-requisites
Playing in the Orchestra 10 introduces students to the rules of orchestra practice, its functioning and organization. It also allows students to gain invaluable experience in playing in an orchestral ensemble. It is taught in a block format common to all students in the performing instrumental degree programs. It thus becomes an important part of the preparation for one of the possible career options for students.
The experience of playing in an orchestra brings knowledge of teamwork, which significantly increases the possibilities of employment in the field after graduation. The goal of the training is to strengthen and develop the student's ability to work collaboratively and his/her adaptability to orchestral needs. It also continues the process of developing orchestral expression with an emphasis on artistic creativity.
In addition to further expanding knowledge of the repertoire and improving their own performance, the students' skills improve, leading to their employment as group leaders and concert masters, members of orchestral academies of foreign orchestras, and eventually lecturers of orchestral courses, as well as successful audition candidates for engagements in the world's finest orchestras.
