Nestled in the heart of Central Europe, the Czech Republic and, specifically Prague, has long been one of the most popular tour destinations for Encore groups. Prague is not only one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, but there is such a rich history of music and culture there with a number of wonderful performance venues and consistently strong audiences. It was home to such world-class composers as Dvorak, Smetana and Janacek and, while not a native, Mozart was a frequent visitor and had a special affection for the city remarking “Meine Prager verstehen mich or My Praguers understand me.”
In this week’s event, please join us as we take a virtual tour around the Czech capital with John Tregellas, Encore’s Head of Operations in Central Europe. Come visit some of Prague’s most popular destinations including Rudolfinum, St. Nicholas Church, The Old Town Square, The Municipal House, Wenceslas Square, and much more! We also discuss the Musica Orbis concert series and Festival, provide information about the 2022 World Association for Symphonic Bands and Ensembles (WASBE) Conference, and sit down for a Q&A session with Lucie Freiberg, the Artistic Director & Director of the Musica Orbis Festival.
