Musica Orbis Prague Festival annually brings amateur musicians from all over the world to Prague. We are determined to create a platform where ensembles share their talents, are evaluated by an expert jury and gain motivation for their further activities. The festival is open to all non-professional choirs and offers both competitive and non-competitive categories and various concerts for the public.
Musica Orbis Prague Festival had a successful debut in 2019. Participating choirs from all over Europe and America filled Prague’s most beautiful concert halls such as St. Vitus Cathedral, St. Simon and Jude Church, the Czech Museum of Music and more with music.
Due to the effects of the pandemic, it was not possible to hold the Festival in 2020, neither in its international form, scheduled for July 16th-20th, nor in the rescheduled autumn date of October 23rd-25th, in which we wanted to support the dormant Czech music scene. However, the traditional summer edition of Musica Orbis Prague Festival 2021 was not delayed and was moved to the safety of a virtual space. The festival was attended by 25 amateur choirs, 8 children and 17 adults, from 12 countries from almost every continent.
Musica Orbis GLORIA (autumn edition of the festival) took place on November 6th-7th, 2021 in the beautiful premises of the Lichtenstein Palace of HAMU in Prague. The renowned jury rated the performances of all choirs very highly, the overal athmosfere was very joyful and we have heard some extraordinary choral music.
With 25 years of experience in organizing concert tours for foreign ensembles, we founded this Festival to spread awareness of the beauty of our capital city and Czech music. We want to connect Czech enthusiastic musicians, singers, choirmasters and other fans of amateur art with equally enthusiastic musicians from all parts of the world.
The festival jury each year includes the most renowned Czech choirmasters and conductors, along with international musical authorities.
Musica Orbis Prague Festival is looking forward to its next year 2022! ❤
Join us with your choir and bring the music of your country to Prague!
