The  Young Brno Symphony Orchestra will celebrate its 25th anniversary

The Symphony Orchestra of the Primary Art School of the City of Brno was founded in 1994 on the initiative of headmasters of primary art schools in Brno. Since 2003, the band has been called Young Brno Symphony Orchestra. This year the orchestra celebrates 25 years of its existence with a concert in the Hall of the Convent of Merciful Brothers.

Among the members of the orchestra, there are pupils and graduates of primary art schools. The MBS Orchestra thus represents a unique project in the city of Brno, which is based on twenty-five years of cooperation with Brno primary art schools. It offers opportunities for young musicians who do not choose to pursue a career as a professional artist, but who still have a warm attitude to music and want to apply their skills acquired during their studies at the music school. The orchestra will celebrate its anniversary this year with an annual concert where all present and former members will meet. The concert will take place on 25 October at 7 pm at the Convent of Merciful Brothers. The programme features Danzon by Arthur Marquez, Masquerade Suite by Aram Khachaturian and Hungarian Dances by Johannes Brahms.

Two sold-out concerts launched on Saturday filled-up the hall of the Koruna cinema in Břeclav, where the Národopisný soubor Břeclavan [Břeclavan Ethnographic Ensemble] celebrated its 65th anniversary and joined thus the series of jubilee folklore ensembles this year. The afternoon concert had to be eventually added because of the huge audience acclaim, which only confirms that in South Moravia folklore is still widely known and enjoys unremitting popularity.  more

The Prophet and the Wind is a multi-genre performance by flute player Martina Komínková. She created it in Italy and after its Italian premiere it will be presented in Brno for the first time.

In the premises of the neo-Gothic Czech Brethren Evangelical Church of J. A. Comenius, on the fifth evening of the Moravian Autumn festival, a performance of sacred music for choir and organ took place.

All this under the direction of choirmaster Lukáš Vasilek.  more

The third event of this year's Moravian Autumn festival was transferred to a theatre stage. The event was made happen by Terén, which is a platform acting as a third stage of the Centre of Experimental Theatre, right after the Goose on a String and HaDivadlo theatres. And it was on this particular stage of the Goose on a String where the world premiere of a stage production of Oedipus by André Gide took place yesterday. Composer Bohuslav Martinů stands behind its equally important incidental music.  more

The jubilee 50th Moravian Autumn music festival started yesterday at Bobycentrum in Brno with a concert performance of the minimalist opera Einstein on the Beach by composer Philip Glass and director Robert Wilson. The concert version was created by collaboration of visual artist Germaine Kruip, Suzanne Vega and Ictus Ensemble and Collegium Vocale Gent. Although only the music remained from the previously stage show, the length of the concert itself was comparable with the opera work. Hence, the evening lasted almost four hours.  more
