Concentus Moraviae

The International Music Festival of 13 Towns CONCENTUS MORAVIAE will enter its 13th year in 2008. For the regions of South Moravia and Vysočina the festival has been a unique musical event. The festival has been held under the auspices of the governors of both regions and the mayors of the festival venues.

The festival contributes to development of tourism in both regions and its significance exceeds the frontiers of the Czech Republic. More than thirty concerts held in June every year take place in nearly 20 towns of South Moravia and Vysočina regions. The festival is unique in the structure of its organisation. The festival towns are co-organizers and intensely contribute to the festival preparation. That allows the mayors and representatives of the culture departments of the town councils to meet periodically on the communal level and facilitates their cooperation in other areas too. The festival heats up the local historic monuments and offers the audiences introduction to the wealth of both regions through first-class concerts in the inspirational environment of chateaux, castles, churches, synagogues and museums of the charming towns.
