Who is the International Orchestral Academy designed for:
The International Orchestral Academy (IOA) is a one-semestral or bi-semestral training programme for students and recent graduates of higher education music schools from all over the world. Within its framework, trainees become members of the Janáček Philharmonic Ostrava and take a part in most of the orchestra performances – subscription concerts, touring projects both locally and internationally, recordings. Under the auspices of JPO principal players, academy members get to play a broad orchestral repertoire with the best Czech and international conductors and soloists. Academy members will also have an opportunity to perform a chamber concert together.

The minimum enrollment period is five months (half-season during either August – January or February-June), maximum Academy membership covers one full season (August – June).

The position is unpaid. Trainees shall be fully funded by their home University/Academy through the Erasmus+ programme (or similar programmes) designed for students´ mobility and professional practice. There is no financial reward whatsoever from the orchestra towards the Academy members. Travel costs to/from Ostrava, living expenses, such as board and lodging, insurance, concert dress, etc. are to be fully covered by the Academy member. Usual Erasmus+ monthly support is fine to cover all of that considering the Czech Republic life standard.
