Logo Bohemia  Prague Symphony Orchestra

The Bohemia Prague Symphony Orchestra derives its origins from the former Central Bohemia Symphony Orchestra which was founded in the spa town of Poděbrady in 1961. After the political changes of 1989, the orchestra was privatized.
The orchestra’s most prestigious appearances in recent years were the open-air concert with José Carreras in Mönchengladbach, Germany, and a year later in the Olympic Amphi in Hamar, Norway. There was also a sold-out concert with Paul Potts in the Rockhal in Luxembourg. 
Another important event in the history of the Bohemia Orchestra was the performance of Mozart’s The Magic Flute at the Grimaldi Forum in Monte Carlo. Another highlight was the opening concert at the Cartier exhibition in the Spanish Hall of Prague Castle. Our orchestra continually accompanies choirs, especially in Germany, but also in Switzerland and France. Such concerts usually take place in churches. See the History for more.

The Cast:

  • Chamber ensembles of any form (three or more players).
  • An orchestra of an at least 20-member cast – with a perfect chamber sound, usually without a conductor.
  • A larger, so called “Mozartian” orchestra, with ca 25 musicians – with a cultivated, rather fine chamber sound, but with a somewhat restricted repertoire. With or without a conductor.
  • A still larger, so called “Beethovenian” orchestra with a conductor, consists of about 35 players. It has a full orchestral sound, though still a little restricted repertoire, especially as far as the style is concerned.
  • A large symphony orchestra with more than 40 members (with a monumental sound, which can induce a real splendorous festive atmosphere).

As we co-operate with soloists – both singers and instrumentalists –, we can organize a concert with a solo performance according to your wish.
