“Our mission is not only to preserve the past and to shape the present, not only to draw upon that which has already been and now exists, but also to contribute to the greatest possible degree to the future”, says Robert Kolář, director of the Academy of

What Do We Do, and Why?

Antonín Dvořák – his name and works are known to all classical music lovers, and not only to them. An intellectual, an enormously versatile and prolific author, the most frequently played Czech composer around the world and the most famous Czech figure in the arts, an important teacher, and actually a philanthropist as well, who spent a large portion of his life supporting and educating young, talented musicians. His music, immanently Czech yet with an enormous international reach, has been of enormous importance to the reception of Czech culture around the world. Already during his lifetime, Antonín Dvořák was regarded as one of the greatest composers, yet he was known for his modesty and patriotism. Undoubtedly for most of us, he is a source of inspiration as more than just a musician.

Our mission and goal is to follow in his footsteps. Come along with us on Dvořák’s path to new worlds.

“I’m glad that the music of my great-great-grandfather has been undergoing a renaissance in recent years, not only in the Czech Republic, but also all around the world. Even after more than a hundred years, his music has enormous power to bring people together, to open up new horizons to them, and to speak to new generations. On behalf of the entire Dvořák family, I am honoured to thank everyone who is helping to preserve his legacy.”

Markéta Dvořáková, great-great-granddaughter of Antonín Dvořák



How Do We Use Your Support?

We direct the money, experience, knowledge, and personal involvement of our supporters into the following areas:

  • Fostering the cultural heritage and legacy of the composer Antonín Dvořák
  • Promoting Czech music at home and abroad
  • Supporting young artists, beginning musicians, and young people with an interest in culture

Dvořák Prague Festival

The chief idea behind the Dvořák Prague International Music Festival has been to promote the reputation of Czech culture at home and abroad through the legacy of the works of Antonín Dvořák, his contemporaries, and his pupils. The support of private donors is important to the festival’s stability, representing approximately 50% of its budget. It is with the hope that we will be able to join forces with other enthusiasts who also want to support a feeling of national pride among the Czech people that we have founded the Dvořák Prague Friends Club.




For the Future

The programme series For the Future represents projects focusing on the education and support of young artists. Each year, the festival hosts a concert for the final round of the competition Concertino Praga. With the aim of strengthening education in the field of orchestral playing, we established a project for a festival student orchestra called the Dvořák Prague Youth Philharmonic. Performing at the festival helps young musicians gain priceless experience and the skill and confidence needed for orchestral playing. Through your contribution, you are supporting promising young musicians who are predestined by their talent and hard work to a professional career and to the possibility of returning to the festival in the role of professional artists.
