Lumbye Akademiet

Lumbye Akademiet

Copenhagen Phil er stolte af at have grundlagt Danmarks første professionelle orkesterakademi, Lumbye Akademiet. Akademiet blev grundlagt i oktober 2022, og intentionen er at bygge bro mellem musikkonservatorierne og de professionelle symfoniorkestre ved at tilbyde orkestertræning til unge musikere – med visionen om at løfte det generelle niveau i symfoniorkestrene i Danmark.

Lumbye Akademiet er baseret på den succesfulde tyske model for orkesterakademier og er det første privat fondet orkesterakademi i Skandinavien. Tanken og visionen bag er at skabe en større professionel masse af højtkvalificerede musikere til de danske symfoniorkestre. Copenhagen Phil tilbyder de unge musikere både efteruddannelse, løbende sparring med mentorer, mental coaching samt masterclasses med de største navne i branchen, hvilket alt sammen skal sikre, at fremtidens musikere både har en øget chance for fastansættelse samt den rette erfaring med i bagagen til et langt professionelt virke.

Med akademiet ønsker vi at styrke internationaliseringen af orkestermiljøer i Danmark samtidigt med, at den danske tradition bevares. Endelig skal Lumbye Akademiet skabe en dynamisk og udviklende atmosfære i orkestrene, som konstant dyrker og kultiverer kvaliteten af et symfoniorkester. Det skal få Danmark på verdenskortet inden for klassisk musik. Derudover er Copenhagen Phil stolte af – med navnet – også at kunne ære H.C. Lumbye som værende én af Danmarks vigtigste komponister. Og tilmed orkestrets første musikchef.

De første syv akademister er fundet via auditions. Flere auditions afholdes i de kommende år.
