A crew of young and incredibly talented musicians who can play literally anything.

What do we do?

We enjoy playing any given genre. Starting by music of Bon Jovi to compositions by Dvořák, from Santana through Zimmer to Kmoch.

The purpose of the No Strings Orchestra is to continue the tradition of wind music in Pardubice town, to promote and popularize wind music, to interpret classical wind works and transcriptions for wind orchestras by Czech and foreign authors.

Members of the NSO

The No Strings Orchestra consists mainly of pupils of ZUŠ Havlíčkova Pardubice, which patronizes the orchestra as a whole, and has also shown an immense support towards the NSO throughout the years. However, besides mentioned pupils, we have got players who have already passed their high school studies or even uni studies and nowadays work full-time.

The orchestra is open to accepting new players no matter their background, professional or non-professional. So then, if you think you have got what it takes to play with us, do NOT hesitate, make sure to hit us with a message and we will do our best to meet both ends.

Hit us!


Check out our "Best of" which contains pieces we already played in the past. We may take out some old bangers every now and then and perform them to our best. Can't miss on those, can you?!
