I initiated the New Time Orchestra project as I noticed short supply of similar orchestral programs on our stages. And yet, there is a big number of music themes, which can be prepared in a new, fresh and modern way. It is always a challenge to kick off and keep alive such a big music project. With this mindset, a couple of my friends joined me, and with a lot of enthusiasm helped me fulfil the mission – we created a dramaturgy plan, music arrangements, tuned up the staffing, and prepared the technical side of the project – sound and lights. I believe that the energy which was invested in the preparation will pass over to the audience and create a unique and energizing concert atmospehere. And that this atmospehere and precise treatment of all the details will enthuse not only the audience, but also our partners, whose generous contribution is indispensable for such large-scale music programs.
And that’s all. Let’s come and meet on concerts. Looking forward to meeting you.
