Promotion of Culture

Suk Chamber Orchestra

We are a long-standing partner of concerts staged seasonally by the Suk Chamber Orchestra. The Suk Chamber Orchestra was founded in 1974 to commemorate the centennial of the birth of Josef Suk. The orchestra’s previous choreographer, the late composer’s grandson and famous Czech violinist Josef Suk, first Antonín Dvořák Prize laureate and holder of the Legion of Honor – the highest state decoration in France, was succeeded in 2000 by the violinist Martin Kos.

Dvořák’s Prague

From the very beginning the main goal of the Dvořák Prague International Music Festival has been to promote the good name of Czech culture via the legacy and works of Antonín Dvořák, his pupils, and contemporaries. As the sole measure of the festival’s success is quality, only outstanding soloists and conductors, the most internationally-acclaimed orchestras and chamber ensembles come together on the Dvořák Prague concert stages to present music by Dvořák and other world composers to international audiences.

Despite its relatively recent history, Dvořák’s Prague is one of the two most popular music festivals of its kind in the Czech Republic. Between 2008 and 2017, the event hosted no fewer than 192 concerts, attracting over 140,000 listeners to its concert halls.
