Thank you for all of your help and assistance during the past several months. It was, I’m sure, a big part of making our tour so successful. The concert in the Spanish Hall is one that my students and I will talk about for the rest of our lives. We so appreciate all that you did in making this such an incredible trip to your part of the world. I hope our paths can cross again in the future.

I want to say a huge thank you for all your wonderful efforts to make our time in Prague so fantastic.
Your organization and choice of choral clinician in Veronika was perfect. All your many many concert details were excellent and you were actually still accommodating for us up to the moment the concert started.
Wow! We’ve been so fortunate to have you.

The Turkish National Youth Philharmonic and I were delighted with our second collaboration with the Prague Concert Co. Any appearance-but specially the first- in major European centers of musical excellence is a memorable experience for young musicians. The excellent team assured concerts in prestigious halls (including in the Smetana Hall in 2015 and the Rudolfinum in 2017) that were profesionally run and extremely well attended. We were also delighted with the services outside the concert halls, which were higly professional and free of stress, so important to us during busy international tours. Thank you all for making this so special for us.
Conductor, Turkish National Youth Philharmonic

This year will be opened at the beginning of March by a Japanese orchestra from Kyoto.
Doshisha University Orchestra is one of the most prestigious and oldest youth orchestras in Japan. They will perform his Symphony No. 7 in D minor on 5 March in the Dvořák Hall of the Rudolfinum. This will be accompanied by the Academic Festive Overture Op. 80 by his mentor and friend Johannes Brahms. The recent musical past will be represented by Music for Symphony Orchestra by Japanese composer Yasushi Akutagawa, which reflects the influences of Dimitri Shostakovich and Sergei Prokofiev.
The second concert in the series will feature the Pacific Symphony Youth Orchestra from Southern California, which celebrates its thirtieth anniversary this year and is recognized as one of the country’s foremost youth orchestras. The orchestra will perform works by Ludwig van Beethoven, Bedřich Smetana and Giuseppe Verdi under the baton of Jacob Sustaita in Prague’s Smetana Hall on June 29.
The third concert of the series will be concluded on 8 July in the Dvořák Hall of the Rudolfinum by the Oakland Symphony Youth Orchestra, an American orchestra from the San Francisco area that tours internationally every three years. Among other things, the Rudolfinum will pay tribute to Czech music with Josef Suk’s Fantastic Scherzo for Orchestra, Op. 25, the Unanswered Question by the American composer Charles Ives and the overture to the opera Candide by his compatriot Leonard Bernstein.
The festival will take place on the 5th – 7th November 2023 in the Concert Hall of the Prague Conservatory on the banks of the Vltava River in Prague. Traditionally there will be a competition, concerts, award ceremony, boat cruise on the Vltava River with a banquet and a Mass participation in St. Vitus’s Cathedral.

The Sounds of Žofín brass music festival featured an incredible 1800 musicians from all over the world, playing 32 concerts over 4 days!
The festival was being held as part of the WASBE (World Association of Symphonic Bands and Ensembles) conference. The 19th annual conference paid special tribute to the Czech-American composer, Pulitzer Prize winner, Karel Husa, whose Music for Prague 1968 is an iconic work of the symphonic wind repertoire, and had also marked the 100th anniversary of the composer’s birth, one year late.
