Strings of Autumn/Prague Sounds


The 'Prague Sounds' project came about as a reaction of the organisers of Strings of Autumn to the coronavirus pandemic in 2020. They put on an open-air concert on a specially-constructed floating stage on the Vltava river in the centre of Prague for an audience on the river, embankments, bridges, and islands that surrounded it. The concert, called 'Prague Sounds: Hope for Prague,' captured the imagination of the world's media and provided proof that music, and the shared cultural experience, can provide light even in the darkest of times. In 2021, Prague Sounds expanded into an open-air festival to mark the 25th anniversary of Strings of Autumn, a celebration of live music featuring artists who have written themselves into the history of the festival. The heart of Prague Sounds will again be the floating stage on the Vltava, with its panoramic backdrop of old Prague.
