The Vox Iuvenalis choir is preparing recruitment of new members

The Vox Iuvenalis choir of the Brno University of Technology announces an audition for new members. Positions are to be filled in all voice groups. 

Vox Iuvenalis is an amateur mixed choir whose members are mostly students and graduates of Brno tertiary schools. It was founded in 1993 following the wish of the graduates of the Gymnasium Vídeňská Brno to continue choral singing even after graduation. Since 2000, the choir has been functioning under the auspices of the Brno University of Technology. The choir was founded and since the very start has been led by Jan Ocetek, graduate of Masaryk University's Faculty of Arts and Faculty of Education, and the Janáček Academy of Music and Performing Arts in Brno (studied conducting under Lubomír Mátl). 

The audition is announced to take place on 20 and 24 February 2020 from 16:00 to 17:30 hrs on the ground floor of the Faculty of Architecture (room 117). For more information or different dates please contact: jan.ocetek@gmail.com

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
