Concerts

Music performances always have played an important role in school life. Music is not only part of all the main school events such as Founders’ Day and Prize Giving, but there are also many other musical events during the school year.

Open Mics, organised mainly by students, or Courtyard Concerts, organised by the Head of Music, are rather more informal musical events.

The Václav Havel Scholarship Concert organised by students and supported by the Head of Music, is one of the biggest musical events of the school year. Its aim is to raise money for the Václav Havel Scholarship, but equally important is that it provides an opportunity to celebrate the talents of our musicians. Students also invite guest performers such as our former students or students from other Prague schools. But the main guests are Roma musicians who always create an unforgettable atmosphere.

The main music event of the school year is undoubtedly the Christmas Concert – a traditional event held in a beautiful venue, the Emauzy Monastery, where parents, students and teachers enjoy the Christmas atmosphere through the musical performances of our students. The best ECP musicians and drama students create a programme with a wide range of musical performances and poetry readings. At the end of the concert, the audience and performers all sing Czech and English carols together. The concert not only provides a welcome opportunity to pause and reflect at the very hectic time of Advent and to enjoy the talents of our students, but it also helps a good cause. All the money raised is donated to the charity chosen by students at the beginning of the school year.
