Culture, Art and History


Do you love Dvořák? Do you sense the value of his artistic legacy and root for our festival? Then there’s a place in our ‘orchestra’ of friends waiting just for you. We continue to seek new members who will join us in bringing to life symphonies of (not only) our hearts, because friends like you are immensely important to us: as much as 50% of the festival’s budget comes from partners and from you, admirers of the bequest of Dvořák and fans of the Dvořák Prague Festival.

Which instrument will be yours?

In a good orchestra you won't find a single instrument, however small, that is superfluous. For us, too, every supporter is important and indispensable. Have a look through the sections of our ‘friends orchestra’ and chose your own place in it.

The STRING SECTION is prepared for Friends of the Festival (CZK 1,500 and up)
Though string instruments are most numerous in an orchestra, and individuality might seem to get lost among them, as a group they often play the main theme. Your role in the orchestra need not be obvious at first glance, yet without you it would all be impossible. 

The PERCUSSION SECTION  is reserved for Pawter Friends (CZK 5,000 and up)
Percussion instruments have always maintained the proper rhythm of the orchestra and are unmistakable in the symphonic flow. They are the beating heart of a musical organism. Thanks to your help in this section it can't happen that the timpani would sound out of the blue at the wrong moment.

The WIND SECTION brings together Copper Friends (CZK 10,000 CZK or more)
If a flute or bassoon player makes a mistake we hear it right away. Therefore a high-quality orchestra has only top-notch wind players. You can be among them.

The majestic KEYBOARD section belongs to Bronze Friends (CZK 20,000 and up)
Piano, organ, harpsichord, or celesta can change the orchestra’s sound in unexpected ways and enhance it with a unique character. Sit down to a keyboard or manual and give our orchestra wings.

The royal HARP symbolises Silver Friends (CZK 50,000 and up)
The harp holds a special place among the community of instrumental sections. Its gentle power penetrates reliably even through the massive sound of the whole orchestra. It symbolises the ancient Czech castle Vyšehrad and mythical Czech singers. Let its unique voice be heard.

SOLO PLAYERS are exceptional, just as are Gold Friends (100,000 CZK or more)
Are you not satisfied being one of many? Do you prefer to 'play first fiddle'? Welcome to the leading solo players of our orchestra. 

How do we utilize your support?

Our goal is not only to raise the funds so necessary to assure the festival’s quality in programming and organization, but to find support—both material and moral—that will help us develop particular projects closely tied to the festival. We direct the financial gifts, experience, knowledge, and personal engagement of members of the Patrons' Club to the following areas:
·       care for the cultural bequest and legacy of Antonín Dvořák, the most esteemed Czech composer worldwide (the Dvořák Prague Festival),
·       promotion of Czech musical art both at home and abroad (the Antonín Dvořák Prize), and
·       support for young artists, beginning musicians, and youth having an interest in culture (The Antonín Dvořák Prize, Debut Day, and the Youth Club).

The membership in the Friends' Club is intended for individual or corporate donors. Membership is always valid for one calendar year (one year of the festival).
The membership contribution has the form of a gift.

Festival navštěvuji od jeho počátků a je každým rokem lepší a lepší! Stal se z něj festival na světové úrovni a jako rodina Antonína Dvořáka jsme neskutečně pyšní. Dekujeme celému týmu AD Prahy a rodině Komárek za jejich lásku a péči k odkazů Antonína Dvořáka.
