Conducting workshop in Dačice
The Czech National Concert Band has been cooperating with the Austrian Musicians Association for more than two years and on the 25th September 2021 served as a training orchestra at the conducting workshop in Dačice. Six Austrian conductors participated in the workshop, which was led by Mr. Jaroslav Šíp, the chief conductor of the Czech Army Central Band. It was a wonderful experience not only for the conductors, who got a chance to practice difficult musical pieces with a semi-professional orchestra, but also for the musicians who practice playing the same piece in six different versions according to specific cues and conducting styles of the individual conductors. We hope the mutually beneficial cooperation will continue in the future as well as it did till now.
