For fans of the Prague Proms and Czech National Symphony Orchestra, this fest is back for the 13th time presenting a charming blend of classics and jazz.
The festival will kick off with a Danny Elfman concert with another big name on this year’s programme being Ute Lemper.
Gordon Goodwin´s Big Phat Band most definitely appeal to all those with a penchant for jazz in its purest form. And while we’re on the topic of festival highlights, make sure to grab tickets to the star-studded concert headed by the one and only Denise Donattelli, a singer nominated several times for the “Best Jazz Vocal Album”. She’ll be joined on stage by the trumpeter Bobby Shew and saxophonist Eric Marienthal– plus several others including the drummer Martijn Vink and the excellent jazz performer and composer Matt Harris.
Obviously film music will also be on the cards with an evening dedicated to Not Just a Hollywood Night. And who better to take the charge than the wonderfully vivacious Carl Davis.
Concerning homegrown bands, look forward to Michal Prokop and Framus Five. Libor Pešek fans will be delighted with the scheduled Libor Pešek´s Impressions concert.
