Michal Emanovsky began playing horn in his native Czech Republic and in 1994 he received a full scholarship to study at the Idyllwild Arts Academy in California with financial support from the Foundation for a Civil Society. Four years later, he was accepted at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia where he completed his Bachelor of Music degree under the tutelage of Myron Bloom and Jerome Ashby. Michal concluded his studies at The Juilliard School in New York where he received a Master of Music degree in the studio of William Purvis.

Michal is currently serving as associate principal horn of the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra. He previously served as principal horn of the Daejeon Philharmonic Orchestra and as guest principal horn with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra.  He has performed with the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra, the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Taipei Symphony Orchestra, the Korean Symphony Orchestra as well as many others.  He has appeared as a soloist with the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra, Gyeonggi Philharmonic Orchestra and Daejeon Philharmonic Orchestra.

Beside performing, Michal spends his time teaching at the Korea National University of Arts where he is an adjunct faculty member.  With the help of the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra, he organizes masterclasses for Korean horn students to give them a chance to gather valuable knowledge from internationally acclaimed artists free of charge.

During Michal's visit at Dover Court International School our students in Year 8 were given a workshop on the orchestration of the horn. Our Year 3 students had an introductory horn session while some of our brass students were invited to attend a much appreciated brass workshop. Our Pathway students thoroughly enjoyed learning more about the horn and listening to Mr. Emanovsky play, and all of our Lower Primary students were delighted to take part in a horn showcase.

For our school orchestra the highlight of the day was to play together with Mr. Emanovsky in preparation of their Christmas repertoire.

A much appreciated day by all!
