FESTIVAL PROGRAM:

MUSICA ORBIS PRAGUE FESTIVAL 2020

Due to public health concern, the Musica Orbis Prague Festival 2020 was rescheduled from the traditional July date for October 24th -25th.

Unfortunately, it could not happen even in the special autumn edition. That is why we started preparing a special online edition for 2021 to safely keep the international dimension of the Festival.

Now more than ever, we are committed to providing a platform for all amateur musicians for sharing their love of music and performance.

Walk down the memory lane with us and look back at Musica Orbis Prague Festival 2019, its participants and winners:
