Benefit Concert: Hana Holišová, Robert Jícha and others support children with oncological conditions

In a benefit concert in Brno’s Sono Centre young artists are supporting children with oncological conditions. The concert is being organised by the Společně k úsměvu (Smile Together) association, founded by former children’s oncology patients. The association supports families whose children are going through this disease, and also the newly founded outpatient department for the treatment of later effects in Brno.

Appearing in the concert will be the actor and singer Hana Holišová, Radka Coufalová, Tereza Mašková, Robert Jícha, the musical group Šroti and the dance ensemble Magic Free Group. Also performing will be cured patients playing the saxophone and performing oriental dance. The concert will take place on 23 October 2018 in the Sono Centre from 5 p.m.

“The event will support follow-up care for hundreds of people who in childhood had an oncological disease and are still dealing with the results of the treatment,” says Markéta Šejnohová from the Společně k úsměvu association. The concert will take place on 23 October 2018 in the Sono Centre from 5 p.m. Buy buying tickets you will be supporting oncology patients.

Společně k úsměvu is a patients’ organisation made up of cured patients, doctors and other partners. With the aid of workshops and the creation of educational materials they try to play a role in the prevention of later after-effects of treatment, such as for example metabolic syndromes, psychosocial effects or dental problems. For this they make use of a unique linking of the current professions of cured patients such as nutritional specialist, medical technician and psychologist.

The Brno group Hrozně slowly approach forty years of age – they started to give concerts in 1982. After several cassettes and unofficial recordings, they released a CD with their debut album Už není čas [There Is No Time Left] in 2013. Their new album named Ticho [Silence], which the band was working on over the last two years in the Indies studio, brings a surprise with its cleaner sound and clearly audible tension in the structure of the songs.  more

Over the four years that divide the release of the first album Záhir, and the second one entitled O Písni [About the Song], Lee Band virtually moved on (previously they stated Adamov as their domicile, now it is Jedovnice), they got on a "wild card" to the Porta festival semifinals in Řevnice, and above all, they advanced slightly in their musical style. While the debut album was more about a folk-rock mainstream, benefiting from the sound of an electric guitar, the new album is dominated by acoustic guitars, often in combination with mandolin and other acoustic instruments.  more

As part of this year’s European Tour, Bobby McFerrin visited Brno’s Sono Centre, where he managed to perfectly use the brilliant acoustics and the close contact with the audience. The legend is back. Indeed, he comes back regularly, and not just to Brno.  more

This year’s eighteenth JazzFest Brno will exceptionally not close with a concert, but rather a unique (though not unusual for world festivals) series of musical and dance workshops, centred on children. On Saturday 4 May, in the pleasant environment of Café Práh, near Vaňkovka, the children students will be taken on board by the significant young personalities of the jazz scene: Beata Hlavenková (pianist and composition lecturer), Dano Šoltis (leader of the drum class) and the multi-instrumentalists Jiří Slavík and Marian Friedl (conductors of Wandering on Jazz Paths), who will be accompanied by Kateřina Hanzlíková with the Tancohraní lectures. With the exception of composition, where it is necessary for the participants to be older than twelve, all the other “classes” are open to everyone, including the youngest. We asked the co-author of the idea of the children’s workshop and director of JazzFest Brno, Vilém Spilka, for further information.  more

The musical Nine, based on the legendary film 8½ by director Frederico Fellini, was prepared under director Stanislav Moša as the penultimate premiere of the season at the Brno City Theatre. They prepared an at places almost erotic show, led by interesting scenography, well-made costumes, brilliant musical preparation and the energy of the female acting. The sensuality of some of the dance parts thankfully did not overshadow the central theme of the hero’s crises: mid-life, art and relationship.  more
