Junior Opole Orchestra

Junior Opole Orchestra - is a band that was founded in 2021. The original intention of the activity was the initiative to prepare young instrumentalists to work in chamber ensembles and large orchestras. The work, dedication and willingness of young musicians to play with their peers allowed the Junior Opole Orchestra to grow into an independent concert orchestra (with such successes as a concert as part of the annual program in the Opole Philharmonic after almost 2 years of orchestral activity). Daily work of the orchestra takes place in 3 support groups (KIDS, JUNIOR, PRO). The idea of the band is to transfer the knowledge and skills of experienced young musicians (including students of instrumental faculties and graduates of the Higher School of Music in Opole) to beginner instrumentalists (in the junior group sit the student and the teacher to a score). Currently, the entire orchestra consists of about 50 musicians aged from 10 to 26 years.

The main purpose of the orchestra is education and development, so its structure is similar to the activities of a professional symphony orchestra. Important functions, besides the conductor, are: Board of the Orchestra, Deputy Conductor, Inspector, Concertmaster, Librarian, Technical Director and Section Leader.
