About us and our project
We are an orchestra composed by young enthusiastic musicians who have decided to work on their own. We need to buy instruments such as timpani, marimba, piano and bass drum as well as music stands, covers for the instruments and sheet music.
It's been almost 7 years since we were under the protection of a music school ZUŠ Police nad Metují, who borrowed us their instruments, space and other equipment. It's very hard to put together the schedule of a music school lessons, two orchestras and few other grouping, all of them in need of those instruments. In addition, ZUŠ and its instruments will move to a new building and we'll stay with the old space we need to equip.
We want to raise 360 000 CZK ($14,500). That would help us to buy the most important equipment to be able to work on our own and improve our conditions and those of the music school. Help us together to raise this money and we'll carry on providing you energy, happiness and enthusiasm for the music.
We need urgently:
Timpani (min. 2pcs): 70 000 + 60 000 CZK
Marimba: 60 000 CZK
Piano: 30 000 CZK
Bass drum: 40 000 CZK
Percussion: 20 000 CZK
Music stands (min. 45pcs): 60 000 CZK

Instrument cases: 20 000 CZK

Pictures from the orchestra's life
Our hometown is Police nad Metují, where we were founded in 2010 by siblings Jakub and Petra Soukup. Nowadays we have fifty-seven members. We enjoy playing different kinds of music from the classical to pop and rock, and even film scores. We have performed over fifty concerts, both in the Czech Republic and abroad. We've performed with Dasha, Ondřej Ruml, Martin Kumžák, Marta Kubišková, Miloň Čepelka, Petr Janda, Václav Zahradník, Stanislav Vavřínek and many others. We also enjoy organizing unusual concerts and supporting good causes!
