BERG Orchestra has a specific mission of promoting new music and attracting new audiences to it. It also mixes music with other arts like dance, theatre, film etc. The orchestra performs not only at regular concert halls but is constantly searching for new spaces for music, its events took place for example at a future metro station or an old sewage plant. So far it has presented more than two hundred new works in world premieres commissioned primarily with the very best Czech composers of younger generations and gave even many more Czech premieres by internationally renowned composers (eg. Black on White by Goebbels, An Index of Metals by Romitelli, Poeme symphonique by Ligeti etc.). It also searches for new event formats, presents soundwalks or educational activities for all generations. BERG Orchestra collaborates with great artists and important organizations including the National Theater in Prague or the Czech Radio. In 2021 it won the prestigious Prix Italia prize for its inventive and playful Music for Sirens.

Berg Orchestra was founded in 1995 on initiative of conductor Peter Vrabel
who still remains its artistic director.
