More about Jiří


Since 2016, he has been studying organ playing at the Conservatory of the Evagelical Academy in Olomouc under the guidance of his supervisor MgA. Karel Martínek, a leading Czech organist.

During his studies, Jiří has participated in the national conservatory festival. He has also performed at many concerts in Czech Republic as well as in Poland. He continues to extend his skills both by attending courses led by leading world organists (O. Latry, H. Leenders, M. Verheggen, T. Ospital etc.) and through private lessons with two Parisian organists (Frederic Blanc, Thomas Ospital).

In 2018 he attended Pro Bohemia international competition in Ostrava followed by London Organ Competition for young organists in 2019. Besides the organ playing, he also enjoys improvising, singing as well as conducting.
