Parallel program of the 2017 festival

Conference, readings, exhibition, and the foundation of the Terezín Composers Institute
A conference on the Terezín composers will be organized during the festival in 2017 in Terezín.

During the festival season of 2017, the Terezín Composers Institute will be officially founded and its structure and research activities determined. The ambition of the Institute is to publish, within a few years, complete works of all Terezín composers and thereby go some way to atone the debt they are owed.
