our values

Music love

That is the key which brings us all together. Guitar is part of our lives, it is our hobby, way of relaxing and also our pride. We play for both our and also your pleasure.

Family & Friendship

We are all different, somebody is a doctor, somebody is a teacher and somebody comes from Moravia. Yet, we make a great team and one music family together.

Discovering & Traveling

Every year we try to boost our repertoire with something new. That is why we participate in international festivals, not only to explore new destinations but also to get new inspiration.

ABOUT US

We are Prague Guitar Chamber Orchestra – 20 guitar enthusiasts  lead by our conductor Vladimír Novotný who established our  assosiation at the turn of the millenium.  Our repertoire consists of mainly film music, arrangments of pop and swinfg music and also classical music. In the orchestra, apart from the classical guitars we also play soprano and bass guitars, mandolines and you can also hear us playing  percussions or singing. We have recorded two successful CDs, shot one proffesional music clip, every year we participate in internationall guitar festivals abroad and our furthest destination was Hong Kong and Singapore in 2016.

PROJECTS

GUITARS TO CHILDREN

We like music and we like even more when we can pass it on to other people. We came up with a charity project Guitars to Children within which we will help children in difficult social environment play the guitar. We decided to support organization People in Need and  thanks to a crowdfunding compaign we gained financial resources to buy 18 guitars to  children centers where children can meaningfully spend their free time and break out of their social isolation.  Thanks to rewards from our sponsors and our PKKO worksoom, we managed to gain more then 94 thousand CZK.  

BAND IN THE SCHOOL

The aim of the project Band in the school is to revive music classes at elementary and secondary schools. Instead of classical music classes, children can become a realy rock starts and experience  the feeling of being part of a music band. They get musical instruments including electric guitars, bass guitars, cajons, microphones together with instructors, some of which are also members from our orchestra.  In one month of practicing the children are able to play a song together even if they have never played any musical instrument before. The classes are ended with a concert of all rock bands and with a common joy from the music and team success.
