About The Prague Proms 2017 classic and jazz music Festival

We are happy to present the classical and jazz music festival - the Prague Proms festival highlights for the thirteenth year in a row. Do not worry about the number thirteen, be assured you can expect only good surprises!
The festival will kick off with a Danny Elfman concert. Yes, no other than the original composer and Oingo-Boingo rock singer who, altough very briefly, performed with the CNSO in the Czech Republic back in 2014. The wonderful John Mauceri will once again be entrusted with baton duties for the evening including introducing Sandy Cameron’s world premiere of Elfman’s violin concerto. Audience members may still recall her killer solo from Edward Scissorhands which were accompanied by some unprecedented dance moves. We are not neglecting Czech bands either! This year we delighted to welcome one of our most loved – Michal Prokop and Framus Five.

Other big names on The Prague Proms 2017 Festival program

Widely celebrated for her interpretations of Kurt Weil but also for her Edith Piaf and Marlene Dietrich songs, singer Ute Lemper rose to fame in the musicals “Chicago” and “The Blue Angel”. Her concert promises to be a true festival gem! Vince Mendoza will be charge of concert preparations and direction. Gordon Goodwin´s Big Phat Band will most definitely appeal to all those with a penchant for jazz in its purest form. This 18-member jazz big band combines thirties and forties swing with contemporary musical styles such as funk and jazz-fusion –earning them several Grammy and other nominations since they started out back in 1999. We also recommend you to grab tickets to the star-studded concert headed by the one and only Denise Donatteli, a singer nominated several times over for her “Best Jazz Vocal Album”. The concerts take place in the Smetana Hall in the Municipal House and other Prague concert venues. 

The Prague Proms 2017 Festival classical music - Libor Pesek

Fans will be thrilled with the scheduled Libor Pesek´s Impressions concert. Don’t miss out on the chance to witness the greatly admired Czech conductor, Prague Proms prezident, chief conductor of Czech National Symphony Orchestra, share his most cherished works over the course of what can only be described as an incredibly abundant career. The concert will also feature piano virtuoso Ivo Kahanek
Another concert dedicated to the late Zdenek Tylsar, the outstanding horn soloist and longstanding principal horn player at the Czech Philharmonic and the CNSO, who made the Czech Horn School an international name, will involve an eclectic program ranging from organs to brass.
Following on from last year’s incredible event, we can look forward to hearing our wonderful CNSO chamber soloists perform once again at the Lichtenstejn Palace in Prague.
