AMADEUS! Chamber Orchestra is a youth music education organization in the Pittsburgh area performing quality classical chamber music under the direction of our Artistic Director, Augustin Martinovic. Personalized instruction and a stimulating environment enable children ages 9 to 17 to perform solo and cooperatively as an orchestra. Excellence is achieved by public presentation to classical music lovers, general public and professionals, in traditional musical settings, as well as by enthusiastically promoting chamber music to youth in different communities.
AMADEUS! associates with local music societies such as the Pittsburgh Chamber Music Society to perform pre-concerts at the Pittsburgh Carnegie Music Hall. The children have the opportunity to learn from internationally outstanding music professionals while developing their musicianship
AMADEUS! Chamber Orchestra is program within Martinovic Classical Music Studio.
Director Augustin Martinovic is an exceptional musician and teacher who is dedicated to the highest caliber of performance. He has painstakingly nurtured a group of good young musicians into an ensemble which demonstrates the best example of what chamber music should be playing which is characterized by the graceful give and take of musical conversation together with a sense and respect for one's colleagues.
During the one thousand days of war in Sarajevo he and his wife continued to teach and perform. Their experience has been documented and written into a theatre play. The writer learned from the Martinovics that music can help transcend tragedy, but also teaches about what it means to be human.
