Orchestra Academy

In existence at Zurich Opera House since the 1997/98 season, the Orchestra Academy gives musicians from Switzerland and abroad the opportunity to gain their first experiences in a professional orchestra for two years. The students are actively involved in the day-to-day work of the Philharmonia Zurich, prepare the pieces they are to perform under the instruction of their mentors (first-chair players and soloists from the Orchestra), are given specialist training for auditions, as well as the opportunity to play chamber music in the widest variety of combinations. Many former members of the Academy have already made the transition to excellent orchestras.
