The biennial Ostrava Days Institute and Festival
(August 14–September 2, 2023) is one of the largest summer new music programs. The Institute consists of lectures, seminars, discussions and meetings. Participants take part in preparing their works, which are performed in Ostrava Days Festival’s program. Ostrava Days Festival includes established and emerging composers, an international community of musicians, two resident orchestras (the 85-piece ONO – Ostrava New Orchestra, and the 35-piece Ostravská banda), and a mixed choir.
Additionally, Ostrava Days includes ensembles, a resident string quartet, and many soloists who will also lead workshops and give presentations. The Ostrava Days Institute is interconnected with the Ostrava Days Festival. The Festival’s program includes compositions by student residents, lectors, a number of well-established composers, and a selection of masterpieces from the recent past, side by side.
The OD Institute accepts a limited number of resident students to ensure one-on-one interactions among all participants. Composers, performers, and musicologists are welcome. The working language is English.
