Dear friends,

The Ameropa International Academy of Chamber Music is currently entering its 28th year. Every year during the summertime, dozens, if not hundreds of musicians from many countries around the world come to Prague to create and play beautiful music together.  This year, however, due to coronavirus events, travel is very difficult. It was a big change when the entire program was moved to the internet for this year.

This situation has also significantly affected the partner project of the international music festival PRAHA, KLASIKA.. . That is why it is also is being held in a much more intimate setting than it has in the past.

On the other hand, we are very pleased that this current online form has opened up the possibility of directly cooperating with the program ASIROPA. It is currently taking place in Changzhou, China, in the Jiangsu province, and online technology allows us to organize real-time rehearsing sessions even without having to travel.

Like Professor Vadim Mazo, who is currently at and running the program in China, we here in the Czech Republic, as well as in Greece, Belarus, Spain, the United States and other countries of this year’s Ameropa, very much welcome and support the musical participation of all of the involved countries. We wish each other many successes and beautiful musical experiences for the upcoming week full of music!

We are very much looking forward to next year when we will be able to meet again in person here in for our extensive international music program!

Jiří Havlík

AMEROPA Managing Director
