This summer, members of the Czech Philharmonic perform Baroque music. 

The oboist and conductor Vojtech Jouza founded the Prague Baroque Ensemble in 1982. Its focus is on music for various combinations of instruments by composers of the late Baroque era. The ensemble members, who are active in the Czech Philharmonic and other orchestras, play on modern instruments, but they aim for stylistically authentic renditions of Baroque music conforming to period performance practice. The ensemble collaborates regularly with Czech Radio and Czech Television. It gives performances in the concert series of the Czech Philharmonic, the Prague Symphony Orchestra Concert Agency, and the Czech Chamber Music Society. The Prague Baroque Ensemble also makes appearances abroad, including its traditional pre-Christmas tour of Japan, which climaxes regularly with an Advent concert at the cathedral in Tokyo.
