Be Yourself and You Have Nothing to Lose

Jana Mimrová, a Young Conductor, to Conduct the Opening Concert of Eternal Hope

Her middle name, Cecilia, is after Saint Cecilia, the patroness of music. That is not the only thing that predetermined Jana (26 years young) to become a conductor. She was born in the town of Česká Třebová and raised in a musical environment: her father is a violin player and conductor, mother a pianist, and both are teachers.

Vilém Veverka is the Face of the Festival

One of the most successful Czech instrumentalists of his generation, oboe player Vilém Veverka, has become the face of this year’s Eternal Hope festival. The same passion that goes into an uncompromising exploration of the limits of his instrument drives Vilém to beat his own limits in mountain expeditions documented by unique photos.

About the Festival

Eternal Hope is a prestigious festival putting emphasis on extraordinary quality and delivering the message of humanity. The festival features the Czech, Jewish and German cultures, whose cohabitation and mutual influences in this part of the world gave rise to remarkable cultural values. As the leading festival in the Czech Republic, it is dedicated systematically to the works of composers who created their compositions in the excruciating environment of the concentration camps during World War II.

The festival’s mission is to bring these phenomena to the public at large – as large as possible – through extraordinary performance art. The festival is a prestigious social event based on genius loci and outstanding artistic performances.

The unifying theme of the festival programme is the idea of Eternal Hope.
