 The Second Funky Night in ArtBar

The ArtBar club in Brno hosts another Funky Night. Funky Chicken, Brass Avenue and Michael V of J.A.R, called Helicopter will appear. The event will feature well-known funky hits as well as completely new ones; the concerts will be accompanied by video projections and a light show.

The second Brno Funky Night will take place in ArtBar again. The event is organised  by the local band Funky Chicken, which has invited Brass Avenue to collaborate; this band brands itself as a "wind instrument showband". Michael V. of J.A.R, called Helicopter, will take care of the afterparty. "In the first half, listeners can look forward to live music performed by two great bands and the following after party, which will be the job of Michael V., who is seen in the Czech Republic as the best Dj in funky and dance music," adds Honza Shanny Fňukal of Funky Chicken.

Funky Night will break out on 26 April at 20:00 in ArtBar club.

The band Funky Chicken is currently preparing material for its second album, which it plans to partly present to the audience. In addition to new songs at the concert, audience will be treated to the band's hits such as Dance, Pumpovat [To Pump], Léto [Summer] and more. Funky Chicken is preparing, as well as the first Funky Night, a special line-up, where the wind instrument section will be added to the band's basic line-up.

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

That evening was not only festive, with an extraordinary list of performers, but especially from many points of view valuable and significant. The bright and shiny ballet gala show of the ensemble of the National Theatre Brno showed many important things at the Janáček Theatre yesterday. On the one hand, the gala concert celebrated the respectable one hundred years' anniversary of the ballet ensemble in Brno, and on the other hand also presented the city as a respected focal point of dance art, where the greatest stars of these days do not hesitate to arrive. And in this first-league competition, the domestic ensemble was successful in its match with the European best and brightest. If you add to this the truly storming and crowded auditorium of the Janáček Opera, meaning more than a thousand satisfied spectators, the above-mentioned artistic gains are accomplished.  more
