Friends' club

"When you come home after the summer holiday, September is the perfect month so the listener doesn't have to go abroad to experience hearing good music. The music world comes here to you, and top Czech musicians appear as well. You don't know where to begin when choosing concerts at the festival. If you don't believe me, come see for yourself. That's another reason why I like the festival and support it." 

Ivana Juráňová

Under Antonín Dvořák’s symbolic baton, a patrons’ orchestra has been created to welcome all admirers of the master’s works. The colours of precious metals represent our membership categories, symbolising the rare silver and gold of instruments’ strings and the bronze and copper tones of the brass instruments. Stay close to us all year, follow our work from preparations to their fulfilment, and take advantage of our club benefits.

The membership in the Patrons' Club is intended for individual or corporate donors. Membership is always valid for one calendar year (one year of the festival). You can become a club member at any time of year, but the best time is in January so you can take advantage of all membership benefits.

Friends (CZK 1,500 or more)

Though string instruments are most numerous in an orchestra, and individuals might seem to get lost among them, as a group they often play the main theme. Your role in the orchestra need not be obvious at first glance, yet without you, it would all be impossible.
