Czech Philharmonic Dynamic Club

"The world’s orchestras depend on support from private sources. Nothing of the kind really exists here yet. But in my opinion, it’s high time that orchestras cease to be dependent solely on the state for their funding. We have to realize that it is up to all of us to help them."

Tom Schrecker, benefactor and patron of the Czech Philharmonic Dynamic Club

The idea behind the club

The newly established Dynamic Club of the Czech Philharmonic has set itself the goal of creating a community of music lovers, friends, and supporters who wish to participate both spiritually and materially in the further development of the orchestra of the Czech nation. It does not aspire to be an elitist association, but rather to be an outgrowth of the conception of the Czech Philharmonic as a national treasure, and it will value every contribution regardless of the amount.

What does your support help us do?

  • Keep our programmes at a world-class level of quality.
  • Support the rising generation of talented musicians.
  • Finance the purchase of rare musical instruments.
  • Record the Czech classics and representative works of the worldwide musical literature for renowned recording labels.
  • Expand the repertoire to include not only music from around the world, but also works by young composers.
  • Develop educational programmes, which we regard as not only an investment in the future concert public, but also an opportunity for the young generation to take part in the Czech cultural heritage.
  • Go on tour to prestigious concert halls in connection with promoting Czech music.
  • Broadcast live concerts and educational programmes.
  • Care for the facilities at the Rudolfinum.
