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.

On Friday 14 February, the Sono Centre in Brno hosted a genre-diversified festival, which was also a celebration of three decades of activity of three publishing branches, which we associate with the original simple name Indies Records. Over the years, Indies Records has divided itself into three separate labels with three distinct edition catalogues – Indies MG, Indies Scope and Indies Happy Trails, which are operated by the personalities of Miloš Gruber, Milan Páleš and Jaromír Kratochvíl.  more

A fateful comedy, the third part of a musical trilogy or a fantasy musical. These attributes define Paradise, a new authorial piece from the workshop of Zdenek Merta and Stanislav Moša. Their ninth joint work in the field of music theatre was premiered yesterday on the big stage of the Brno City Theatre. The result is embarrassing.  more

Director, librettist and stage designer David Radok and composer, but also chief conductor of the opera ensemble Marko Ivanović created the authorial work for the opera ensemble of the National Theatre Brno. The opera The Monument, which was premiered yesterday, tells the story of sculptor Otakar Švec (1892–1955), whose design in 1955 was a portent of Stalin's monument at Letná. The title roles in the Janáček Theatre were performed by: Stanislav Sem (Sculptor), Markéta Cukrová (Wife), Roman Hoza (Colleague) and Ondřej Koplík (Minister of Culture). The solo parts were complemented by the Opera Choir, the Czech Academic Choir and the Brno Children's Choir. The Janáček Opera Orchestra was directed by the author of the music Marko Ivanović.  more

On the next day after the powerful experience I had gotten from the performance of Requiem by the Armenian composer Tigran Mansurian, I had the opportunity to meet its creator. The fragile, gentle and sincere music thus foreshadowed me of its author, with whom I spent a few precious moments in the director's lounge of the Besední dům in Brno in a very friendly conversation.  more

If a band releases a new album after ten years and calls it Dej si čas [Take Your Time], it sounds like a pleasant self-irony. But what is ten years against delays of other bands, whose fans had to wait for new albums for eighteen (AG Flek) or even thirty years (Progres 2). For Mošny, it was said that the new album started to emerge a few years ago, but the group wanted to include some brand new songs, which they needed to rehearse and finish.  more
