Since 2013 a cooperation between the Musikgymnasium Linz (as part of the Adalbert Stifter Gymnasium) and the Musikgymnasium Prague (Gymnázium a Hudební škola hl.m. Prahy) has been in place, involving several joint music projects.
Until August 2019 the project entitled ´Sound of Neighbourhood‘ altogether comprised six joint concerts on a professional level, performed in an appropriate ambience, that is to say in renowned concert halls: four chamber music evenings and two large orchestral or choral-orchestral concerts. The second project, entitled "Musical Spheres - Human Sound Traces", is intended to deepen the cooperation between the two institutions and to convey the educational value of European cultural heritage away from mainstream and the uniformity of a pseudo-world culture through a practical examination of Central European music from the Baroque to the 21st century. Two large orchestral projects and two chamber orchestra concerts are planned by 2021.
These projects are designed as joint orchestra projects striving to bring together musically gifted students and teachers from both countries.
