Recruitment for the 2020/2021 season for the 9th edition of the Sinfonia Varsovia Academy is in progress. We would like to invite young instrumentalists - students and graduates of music academies, violin, cello, oboe and horn classes. Applicants must have Polish citizenship and be under 26 years old on 31 December 2020.
The academy is seasonal and is made up of 2 semesters. The course starts with a concert project to be performed on Sinfonia Varsovia’s premises between 23 and 30 August 2020. Full availability is required from participants on these dates. The concert project includes one-to-one instrumental sessions with concertmasters and section leaders of Sinfonia Varsovia, section rehearsals, participating in the rehearsals of the Sinfonia Varsovia Academy chamber orchestra, performing at the concert on 30 August, and group workshops designed to prepare students for a professional career as members of orchestras.
