The Prague Six Concept Art Orchestra

CONCEPT ART ORCHESTRA is an occasionally performing Czech big band composed of first class Czech jazz performers, led and conducted by the trumpetist and composer Štěpánka Balcarová. The album THE PRAGUE SIX contains first recordings of contemporary compositions by young Czech composers who have formed the group of the same name and majority of them are also among the band-members. Large original compositions lie at the border of jazz and classical music and use all expression possibilities and perfect interplay of the orchestra, as well as improvisation skills of individual members.
