Everlasting Hope is part of the Musica non grata project

31. 7. 2020
Two concerts and one performance of the festival of not only Terezín composers Everlasting Hope will be supported by the Musica non grata initiative - a four-year project funded by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Federal Republic of Germany. Its aim is to emphasize the extraordinary importance of relations with the Czech Republic and to honour the memory of a group of composers persecuted by the Nazis and artists closely associated with Prague and the Czech Republic. "I firmly believe that thanks to this project, the names and works of composers persecuted and murdered by the Nazis during the occupation of Prague will be again introduced to the public. Remembering them is an important part of dealing with the injustices committed. At the same time, we want to use this project to emphasize the importance of partnership with the Czech Republic and show that our common European cultural heritage is extremely valuable and needs to be protected, "said Michelle Müntefering, Secretary of State for International Cultural Policy at the Federal Ministry of Foreign Affairs. This intention is completely in line with the mission of the Everlasting Hope festival. This year the project will support the opening concert at the State Opera on October 14, the performance of PhilHarmonia Octet in the church of St. Simon and Judy on 16 October and a performance of the children's opera Brundibár on 24 October.
