On the New Year´s Eve, immerse into the touching sound of classical music performed by the beautiful soprano Anda-Louise Bogza and Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. Smetana Hall is the perfect choice for such a occassion.
Developed in the 1990s into the most requested recording orchestra in Europe. The orchestra records more than 100 sessions per year, which include film music for producers from around the globe; classical music for Decca, EMI, Sony BMG and other labels; as well as music for commercials.
Soil Gabetta and Jonas Kaufmann are just a few of the famous soloists who have recorded CDs with the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. With Friedemann Riehle conducting, the orchestra's annual New Year's Concert has become a highlight of Prague's live classical music scene.

Built as a tribute to Bedřich Smetana - world known Czech composer. Representative Smetana Hall was the site of the independent Czechoslovak Republic declaration in 1918. Nowadays it serves predominantly as a concert hall.
Beautiful Art Nouveau decorations – paintings with Slavic motifs, decorative stained glass ceiling, gilded lamps, beautiful organ – all this creates an unusually harmonic whole, which is a worthy area for implementation of the greatest treasures of Czech and world classical music.
The Municipal House in Prague was built at the place of the former Royal Court in 1912 to celebrate the Czech nation. It is a representative building which for its splendour and beautiful decorations is one of the jewels of Prague architecture. Although the building is usually described as an "Art Nouveau" edifice it is more of a blend of neo-Baroque, neo-Renaissance, western and oriental influences and Czech Art Nouveau style.
Today, the Municipal House in Prague offers a wide range of multifunctional premises in which all sorts of events are held (exhibitions, conferences, fashion shows, charity events, companies' shows, etc.). There is also a great and highly recommendable French restaurant, Municipal House Café and American bar.
Municipal House is, above all, a great venue for Prague classical music concerts and one of the prime venues of the world-famous Prague Spring Festival.
Do not miss your chance to visit great classical music concert in one of the nicest concert venues in Prague!
Fantastic concert in an awesome venue. The Prague Philharmonic Orchestra sounds excellent and it was to the high level you are expecting for this kind of event. Bravo!
The music was excellent, and the atmosphere absolutely enchanting; I will be recommending it to everyone!
Tourist-oriented concert, czech music has much more to offer.
Concert had already started while people were still taking their seats, making a lot of noise and disturbing others. Ushers should have just stopped them at the entrance and do not let them walk during the performance.
The concert was excellent
This concert was the highlight of our European vacation. The program was wonderful; a perfect way to spend New Year's Eve.
A very enjoyable concert!
