Dear concert visitors,
I am very glad to welcome you on these sites dedicated to Emmy Destinn Music Festival. This festival was established by my friend Ing. J. Pomeje and me in 1990 in occasion of celebration of our most famous songstress who subjugate all cultural world by her singing. She was rejected only in Bohemia. Emmy Destinn moved to South Bohemia to spend her last 15 years there. She died in České Budějovice in 1930. Her persecution went on during all former regimes. Therefore this music festival tries to pay her back such a longtime lasting moral debt.
The Festival office of Emmy Destinn, that organizes this festival, aims to acquire first-class local and foreign artists to ensure high quality of all concerts. The only requirement is that at least one singer who performed in the same opera house where Emmy Destinn celebrated her greatest successes has to participate on the last Opera gala concert in honour of Emmy Destinn.
Due to the fact that these projects are very money wise demanding
we wouldn’t be able to realize them without our sponsors whose
support we appreciate a lot. Especially we would like to thank to the
of Emmy Destinn Music Festival - joint-stock company HOCHTIEF VSB.
Simultaneously we get a lot of help from the statutory city České Budějovice
that is a
co organizer of this festival as well.
Let me cordially wish you great artistic experience when visiting Emmy Destinn Music Festival.
Director of Emmy Destinn Music Festival
