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 educational project made possible thanks to the support of sponsors like the Hapag-Lloyd Stiftung, the Kulturbehörde der Freien und Hansestadt Hamburg and the Philharmonische Gesellschaft. To the Philharmonic State Orchestra, the Orchestra Academy is a valuable addition to its work in supporting young talents.
Meet the members of our Orchestra Academy: in different formations ranging from trios to a mixed nonet ensemble, the members of the Orchestra Academy present themselves on the concert stage. The programme is as varied as it is diverse, with pieces from the classical era to our own times.
