Patrons 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.

MEMBERSHIP CATEGORIES and their main benefits

PLATINUM PATRONS / Solo performers (CZK 100,000 and more)

Ideally, soloists are performers who, through their art and charisma, win everyone over to their side. The orchestra plays behind them like never before and the audience is amazed at what a soloist can do. The best of them are not selfish exhibitionists, but generous personalities who can share their art in a unique and special way.

GOLDEN PATRONS / Harp (CZK 50,000 and more)

It was Lumír and other fabled singers who sang the praises of the mythical Vyšehrad to the sound of their harps. Legendary Irish bards traipsed around the green island with harps in their hands. In today’s orchestra, the harp also boldly conveys important messages. It wanders among the other instruments alone, with everyone listening to her.

SILVER PATRONS / Keyboard instruments (CZK 20,000 and more)

Today’s orchestra with piano, celesta and a harpsichord takes on a heavenly glamour and amazing rhythmic energy. Just a few touches of the keys and everything changes at once. The sound of the orchestra rotates and soars into the sky.

BRONZE PATRONS / Wind instruments (CZK 10,000 and more)

Imagine the largo from the New World’s Symphony and you will immediately recall the slightly nostalgic tone of the English horn. Remember how beautifully the clarinets and flutes converge as they talk about the confluence of the Cold and Warm Vltava rivers. Wind instruments enhance the character of an orchestra, underlining its personality.

COPPER PATRONS / String instruments (CZK 1,500 CZK and more)

Have you ever heard people praise the unique sound of the Czech Philharmonic? Have the rumours about the Berliner Philharmoniker’s smooth legato reached your ears? Whether yes or no, these characteristics largely apply to string instruments. The strings lay the foundations of the orchestral sound. Everything else is based on the strings.
