Prague Chamber Guitar Orchestra

was founded at the turn of the millenium and started with simple arrengements of Renaissance songs and Latin American music. Later it grew to today’s number of 21 members and now it concentrates primarily on movie music and music straddling swing and pop. Its greatest achievements so far include 2nd place on international Mozart competition in Prague in spring 2007 and 2008 and a very successful international presentation of the orchestra on a festival in German Wetzlar and Frankfurt am Main and in French Avignon. In 2009, a civil society organization for support of the orchestra activities was founded, and in summer 2010, the orchestra recorded its profile CD. Its latest achievement is 2nd prize in the competition Omiš Guitar Fest 2010. Concerts in Deinze in Belgium 2011 and in Juvisy-sur-Orge in France in 2012 were a great success. Prague Chamber Guitar Orchestra also enjoys playing at charity concerts.
