Ostravská Banda presents “The Czech-American Music Connection”
In April 2023, the Czech Republic’s Ostrava Center for New Music will present two concerts by Ostravská banda in New York City with a program of music by Czech and American composers: on April 20 at the Buchwald Theater at Brooklyn College (part of the new Leonard & Claire Tow Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College) and on April 21 at Bohemian National Hall in Manhattan. Tickets are free and may be reserved at semensemble.org/upcoming-events.
Ostravská banda will collaborate with New York’s S.E.M. Ensemble, forming a 22-piece chamber orchestra. Both groups were founded by the Czech-American composer and conductor Petr Kotik, who divides his time between New York and Ostrava, Czech Republic, where he directs the bi-annual summer program Ostrava Days, of which the Ostravská banda is one of the two resident orchestras.
Venue: Buchwald Theater, Brooklyn College
