Moravia Brass Band

We are a thirty-member ensemble consisting only of brass and percussion players, in our new era since 2017.

We are proud that our orchestra, composed of the most skilled professional players from all over the Czech Republic, regularly performs, records and presents new unique projects. Each of us is an individual and a soloist, but together we are a unique ensemble – Moravia Brass Band.

We met for the first time ten years ago at the Conservatory of P. J. Vejvanovský in Kroměříž, where we decided to start our first brass band. After graduation most of us got engaged in professional symphony and theater orchestras or continued studying at the academy.

As part of the pilot project FILM MUSIC TOUR 2018, we organized 11 concerts across the Republic, attended by about 6,000 listeners. Among other things, we performed at the Špilberk International Festival. Satisfied audiences required a sequel, which we will start on September 16, 2019 in Zlín.

Since 2018 the chief conductor of the orchestra has been Chuhei Iwasaki.

Followed by the project “The bells will sound the temple” in the Basilica of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary in Brno. The orchestra performed in a completely different spirit. Baroque music and acoustic possibilities of the basilica attracted many listeners.

An important milestone in our career was the commencement of close cooperation with Czech Radio Brno, to which we, unlike the concert, wished for his 95th birthday in June 2019.

This year we will perform with several projects – FILM MUSIC TOUR 2019 with a new program !!

The soloist of the season is the solo trumpeter of the Berlin Philharmonic, Gábor Tarkövi, who will perform with us at three GALAKONCERTECH in October 2019.

Immediately in the new year we will start our international cooperation with Prague Royal Philharmonic under the leadership of Heik Mathias Förster with the pompous BRASS UP program !!

In June 2020 we will sound the temple at the Smetana’s Litomyšl National Festival and then in September at the St. Wenceslas Music Festival.
