Prague Spring Online

As spring has unquestionably arrived with a new palette of colours, scents and fresh energy despite the ongoing challenging context of the Covid pandemic which, despite continuing to alter our lives and activities, has also given us new opportunities and perspectives.

One of the opportunities that we are very pleased to bring to you is one of the world’s oldest and most famous classical music festivals: the Prague Spring. As this year’s festival is going online with a superb musical programme, the Czech Centre will offer you over the next three weeks an array of live-streamed concerts including the world premiere of a work by Jan Ryant Dřízal performed by Brno Contemporary Orchestra and the Prague Symphony Orchestra playing Josef Suk.

We are thrilled about this rare musical opportunity delivered to your home and sincerely hope you will be able to join the worldwide audience.
