Orchestra Academy

Supporting young professional musicans

In 2011 the Philharmonic State Orchestra was the first to found an academy for nurturing new talents. 14 young musicians are given the chance to work in close cooperation with the orchestra for the duration of two years. The main aspect of this training is to participate in rehearsals, concerts, operas and ballets, to get to know specific challenges and to enjoy playing in an orchestra. The academy education program is both challenging and extensive, demanding concentration and commitment from its participants. The members of the Orchestra Academy learn an extensive variety of symphonic works, ballets and operas as well as getting to know the flexibility of a business with a large repertoire. The two year academic program includes weekly private lessons, as well as help in preparing for auditions, offered by musicians of the orchestra. Apart from this, the young musicians can gain experience in chamber music by rehearsing and performing chamber music concerts.

The first Orchestra Academy of Hamburg

2011 the Orchestra Academy has become possible due to the generous support of the Kulturbehörde der Freien und Hansestadt Hamburg, the Hapag-Lloyd Foundation and the Philharmonische Gesellschaft. Now the Freundeskreis of the Hamburg Philharmonic State Orchestra is also financing a position in the academy education program.

The Orchestra Academy is intended for young musicians aged 26 and under.
