Oboist Vilém Veverka is one of the most respected Czech performers. He graduated from the Prague Conservatory, the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague and repeatedly attended courses by the prominent French oboist Jean-Louise Capezzali. However, a major impetus in his artistic development was his performance in the "Gustav Mahler Jugend Orchester" and subsequent studies with the leading German oboist Dominic Wollenweber at the Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler in Berlin. His professional development was significantly enriched by two years of work in the Berlin Philharmonic. The journey culminated in his victory in one of the most prestigious oboe competitions - the Sony Music Foundation (Tokyo, 2003). His repertoire includes works of all styles - from the Baroque to the present. In September 2015, he released another, third solo album (“Oboe Concertos”) at Supraphon - concerts by J. S. Bach, A. Vivaldi and G. Ph. Telemanna (with Ensemble 18+). This recording is considered the best Czech record of its kind.
He studied violin at the P. J. Vejvanovský Conservatory in the years 2009-2015 with prof. Jaroslav Krátký. He regularly participates in violin competitions - in 2011 at the Josef Muzyka International Competition in Nová Paka he received an honorable mention and a year later the 3rd prize. In 2018, he received an honorable mention at the Bohuslav Martinů competition in Prague. Since 2011 he has been a regular participant in master classes prof. Bohuslav Matoušek, with whom he studied at the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague. In 2013 and 2015, he became a scholarship holder of the Czech Music Fund Foundation for the Support of Czech Modern Music. In September 2015, he performed solo at the Kroměříž Music Summer festival accompanied by the Moravian Philharmonic Olomouc. In 2018-2019 he completed a year of study at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna with the concertmaster Wiener Symphoniker Jan Pospíchal. He is a member of the Errai piano trio, which regularly performs in the Czech Republic, Germany and Turkey. In 2018, this trio won 2nd place at the Bohuslav Martinů competition in Prague, and in 2019 they performed solo with the North Bohemian Philharmonic in Teplice.
