48th Meetings with Music: Compositions by Bedřich Smetana performed by Jitka Čechová

For students For employees

The 48th Meeting with Music is dedicated to the work of Bedřich Smetana, a crucial Czech composer whose centenary of the birth we celebrate this year.  On Monday 15th at 18:30, Jitka Čechová will perform in the Zenger Auditorium on the CTU campus at Charles Square. Listeners can look forward to compositions like Macbeth and Witch, The Treasure of Melodies and much more. 

The concert is intended for students, employees of the CTU and graduates of the CTU’s Faculty of Electrical Engineering. Everyone is welcome to bring one guest. As long as we do not face an overflow of listeners, admission to the Meeting is free and without prior registration. Dress-code is casual.

František Vejražka and Václav Hlaváč, two professors at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, initiated the launch of the tradition of Meeting with Music. "Professor Václav Hlaváč came to me with this idea. His idea was to prepare a concert for our employees who were coming from work, not dressed festively and would welcome a calm wind-down moment with nice music," recalls Prof. Vejražka in an interview.

The aim is to provide students and staff with a straightforward, inexpensive and informal opportunity to encounter music on a regular basis. Verbal interaction between performers, presenter and audience is also expected during the evening. The programme is generally chosen to be of interest to new music listeners.
