Members of the Orchestra

A great musical body, like a philharmonic orchestra, is primarily a community of people connected with passion for music. For years, the Pilsen Philharmonic has managed to preserve the balanced composition of the orchestra where, besides artists with rich artistic and human experience, young professionals meet. The coexistence of different artistic approaches, generations and unique individualities is constantly maintained.
