is one of the top Czech orchestras. Prague Philharmonia organizes concerts of classical music in Prague, performs at music festivals in the Czech Republic and regularly appears abroad.
The orchestra was founded in 1994 by the world renowned conductor Jiří Bělohlávek and under his leadership quickly became one of the best Czech orchestras with an international reputation. This has been confirmed by the orchestra's long-term success with the audiences and critics alike, regular invitations for tours abroad and recording contracts with major international labels. Prague Philharmonia's current chief conductor and music director is Jakub Hrůša.
The average age of the musicians is currently 34 years. The young spirit of the orchestra is accompanied by genuine enthusiasm and vigour with which the orchestra performs at home and abroad.
On Wednesday, 12 June we will be holding another two Concerts for Schools in English, to which we also cordially invite individual children accompanied by adults. The programme is inspired by the period of Impressionism. The PKF – Prague Philharmonia players will present works by Maurice Ravel, Claude Debussy and Igor Fyodorovich Stravinsky, who were all profoundly influenced by this art movement based on primary impression or mood. The orchestra will be joined by the actresses Hana Mathauserová and Stela Chmelová, who will guide the children through the programme.
There are still a few tickets available for the concert starting at 9.30 am. If you are interested in attending, please call Vladimíra Brychová (739 637 630), or contact her by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
