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 Olomouc Baroque Festival has begun. In the local Jesuit Convent the seventh year of the festival opened with the modern premiere of the serenata Il tribunale di Giove by the Austrian composer Karl Ditters von Dittersdorf. The work was first performed at the birthday celebrations for the Prussian King Frederick the Great on 27 January 1775 and after a repeat in Wroclaw in 1777 it fell into oblivion. The Ensemble Damian decided to reverse this unfortunate fate, and led by the ensemble’s artistic director and director Tomáš Hanzlík they attempted to revive the work. Appearing in the solo roles were Leandro Lafont (Fate and Apollo), Kristýna Vylíčilová (the Genius of Europe and Minerva), Lucie Kaňková (Time and Fortune), Monika Jägerová (Jupiter) and Jakub Rousek (Mars). The costumes and backdrops were designed by the director Hanzlík.  more

The end of the first school-holiday week was carried in the spirit of celebrations. The 7th of July in fact falls on the birthday of Alena Veselá, a prominent Brno organist and a professor at the Janáček Academy of Music and Performing Arts (JAMU), who celebrated an impressive age of 96 years on that day. The concert, organised particularly for this jubilee, was also the final event of the 39th Brno Organ Festival and as a celebration of the birthday of its founder (and now patron of the whole show), it already has a strong position in the festival programme.  more
