The Brno Contemporary Orchestra (BCO) was established in 2011 with the purpose to present contemporary world music at home and Czech music abroad (with overlaps to the music of the 20th century).
We want to draw up listeners and show them that the music is a part of our daily life. By compact dramaturgic units and by original projects linking music with other arts (film, visual arts, etc.) we wish to be attractive not only for the audience, but even for composers – which we want to motivate to create new pieces made-to-measure for the orchestra.
The founder, artistic director and conductor of BCO is Pavel Šnajdr.
