About The Festival
Founded in 2005, each year the Prague Proms International Music Festival presents audiences with a plethora of concerts spanning a wide range of genres. Over the course of its existence, visitors have heard hundreds of musical productions and been able to meet an incredible number of both local and international artists in person. To name a few, this includes Vince Mendoza, Danny Elfman, Vladimir Cosma as well as Ennio Morricone.
And the 2023 programme promises to more than live up to our reputation with a number of exceptional concerts planned to mark the Czech National Symphony Orchestra’s thirtieth anniversary this year.
Undoubtedly one of the most anticipated events will be the Eastwood Symphonic taking place at the Municipal House. Featuring melodies from Clint Eastwood's films, along with his son Kyle Eastwood, the orchestra will pay tribute to this world-class actor. Actor Sarah Haváčová is also scheduled to appear at The Loop Jazz Club presenting the monodrama Alma Rosé by Polish author Mariusz Urbanek. Meanwhile the Smetana Hall will host the Voices of Hollywood concert , together with the Czech National Symphony Orchestra, the Jeremy Winston Chorale and Steven Mercurio, who will showcase stellar hits from a number of top soundtracks.
Another highlight will be a visit from the remarkable Vince Mendoza who is coming to Prague’s Municipal House to perform his magnificent Grammy Award-winning work, which we were proud to be a part of. There will also the chance to attend a more intimate guitar recital with Pavel Steidl at our jazz club. The following day St. Barbara’s Church in Kutná Hora will be filled with the voices of the renowned Jeremy Winston Chorale.
Then as we enter September, two female singers - Veronika Vítová and her guests will perform at The Loop Jazz Club Hostivař, and Austrian soprano Hedwig Ritter at the Martinů Hall of the Liechtenstein Palace – both events that are sure to bring joy to a great many fans. Jazz aficionados meanwhile will surely appreciate the unique Jam Session project scheduled to take place at the Hostivař club. And once again, our beloved Carl Davis will appear at the Municipal House leading the Czech National Symphony Orchestra perform timeless songs from one of the world’s most acclaimed bands in the world at The Beatles Night concert. RAZAM with Iva Marešová will present their CD at The Loop Jazz Club, plus there will be a CNSO Chamber Soloists concert at the Agnes Convent. The festival will be brought to a close by a Focused on Jazz Fusion concert. And where else but in our beloved Loop Jazz Club Hostivař.

Our desire to bring joy to you, our fans, grows each time you pay us a visit.
