Festival Orchestra is a unique ensemble, which includes concertmasters (renowned musicians) of leading orchestras in Ukraine and abroad. A group of such professionals only gathers during the time of the festival, therefore we encourage all visitors to attend their concert. In many countries that host major music events, festival orchestra has been part and parcel of their programme for many years. Festival Orchestra has been assembled for the first time in Ukraine during KharkivMusicFest in 2018.
In 2019, Festival Orchestra of KharkivMusicFest gained international status when they were joined by leading singers of national symphony orchestras from Austria, Czech Republic, Georgia, Germany and Poland. In 2020, the festival orchestra will become truly large-scale – musicians from 15 countries will gather on one stage to play in a unique KharkivMusicFest orchestra.
