7th annual has finished

Dear attenders and supporters of Prague Proms festival,

After a month of series of concerts the festival's 7th annual has finished today. These concerts were bringing an overwhelming joy to all of us. We can now say they were all successful. As usually the program has addressed audiences of different tastes and views of music. Besides the classical music concerts - brought to you e.g. by conductors Libor Pešek, Ignat Solzhenitsyn, many chamber ensembles and other great musicians - the opposite side of the music spectrum was presented among others by popjazz Level 42, excellent jazz quintet of Terence Blanchard, the legendary trumpet player Bobby Shew, St. Blaises Bigband, Jazz Efterrätt, or the unforgettable young jazz musicians show Prague Proms Open at the Jazz Dock music club, and many other concerts.

We have quite traditionally included the film scores concerts - Carl Davis brought the Hollywood Night subtitled "Oscar Winners" and the prolific and legendary film composer Ennio Morricone introduced his works on the stage of the Smetana Hall in two concerts.

Huge choirs joined together to sing works of Bernstein and Mozart, but also Gospel music.

As an experienced, refined, precise and impressive red thread the Czech National Symphony Orchestra was a cohesive accompanying part in most of the concerts.

Joyful and excited by crowded performances under the big spotlight of medias we are already preparing the next annual. We can't wait to the opening of the 8th annual Prague Proms 2012.
