The Czech Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra was founded in 1977 by Pavel Prantl and colleagues from the world-renowned Czech Philharmonic. Soloists for the 30th Anniversary tour in October 2007 include the much-recorded oboist Jana Brozková, solo oboe of the Czech Philharmonic and the young Czech violin virtuoso Barbora Kolárová, who has performed as soloist with the orchestra on multiple tours. “The precision and artistry of the Czech Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra are a wonder to behold. Not only is each note perfect, each phrase is a study in musicality. And, the musicality is very distinctly Czech and not a copy of the current prescribed method of performing a particular work.” - Journal de Geneve (Switzerland)

The Czech Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra is sponsored in part by the Wisconsin Arts Board and Wauwatosa Savings Bank. The Schwan Concert Hall is located in the college’s Center for Arts and Performance at 8815 W. Wisconsin Ave. Tickets are $45 general, $41 seniors and $10 students. To purchase tickets, call the WLC box office at (414) 443-8802 or visit wlc.edu/arts.

Since 1996, the Wisconsin Lutheran College Center for Arts and Performance has been providing a comprehensive program of performing and visual arts and educational and community events for students and the people of southeastern Wisconsin.
