Our foundation has been operating at the Kořenského elementary school in Prague 5 since October 2014. At the moment this orchestra comprises more than 20 children of 7 different nationalities. Under the leadership of experienced music teachers the children learn to play the violin, viola or violoncello. Two-hour lessons are held three times each week – one-hour rehearsal in groups of individual instruments and one-hour joint orchestra rehearsal. The orchestra has already given many public performances (Christmas and Spring Concert at the ZŠ Kořenského, performance at the NGO Market, performance at a commemorative rally at Lety u Písku etc.). In June 2015 the children successfully attended a Side by Side camp in the Swedish town of Göteborg, where they met small musicians from all over the world and performed in an orchestra consisting of more than 600 players. Our cooperation with the ZŠ Kořenského continues in the school year 2015/2016.
