Workshops for schools

For its educational workshop activities, the Janáček Philharmonic Ostrava is equipped with a large set of Orff instruments which makes it possible even for a school group to form an “orchestra” within 90 minutes, in which (almost) everyone who plays does it correctly! And it is this shared experience and active playing which is one of the (many) ways to really get in touch with the magic of music. In the 2017/18 season, you can choose from these music events:

From Syllable to Nursery Rhyme, From Nursery Rhyme to Song
