Otakar Ševčík Festival

Experience once-in-a-lifetime moments in the midst of the picturesque Horažďovice town. You will be present to top-class performances of musicians from all over the world in splendid concert halls as well as parks, cafés or in the middle of the night in a church, in the case of thematic concerts.

The concerts of the festival invite the visitors to listen chamber and solo pieces performed by first-class artists, who have accepted the invitation from guarantors of art; violinist Josef Špaček and violoncellist Tomáš Jamník. A concert weekend, during which various places in Horažďovice will fill with music, will be the climax of the festival, with the gala concert on the Hodažďovice’s Mírové náměstí („The Peace Square“) as a cherry on top.
