Janáček Philharmonics of Ostrava
Be enchanted by the art of music performed by one of the three best symphony orchestras in the Czech Republic, active since 1954. The orchestra, currently counting about 100 members, is recognizable thanks to the full sound of its string section, its musical interpretation and technical prowess.
The Janáček Philharmonics of Ostrava (JFO) annually organizes over 50 diverse symphony concerts for its audience, attempting to offer the widest repertoire possible, including Czech and world premieres and starring the best artists.
Its concert set list includes not only traditional symphony series, but also narrated concerts of film soundtracks, shows intended for families with children, chamber series, young talent concerts, the Gong concert series aimed at merging classical music with other genres, etc. The orchestra tries to maintain the classical tradition, while attempting to interest the modern listener. That is why it cooperates e.g. with the known Czech DJ Lowa on a project that connects orchestral music with electronic dance music.
