Old Music Still Attracts Many People

20 July 2006, 23:06 - Music
7th International music festival Summer Festivities of Early Music takes place in Prague from 18th July to 6th August 2006. The organizers - Collegium Marianum - are looking for music that is not usually in spotlights of big orchestras.

This year's festival reflects the 250 anniversary of birth of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The festival motto can speak by itself. »Vogliam ridere e scherzar« (We want to laugh and be happy) comes from the first part of Mozart's opera Don Giovanni.

All concerts take place in unique and stylistically appropriate historical locations of Prague palaces, churches and gardens, such as Troja Chateau, Břevnov Monastery or Lederbour Gardens by the Prague Castle.
