New: Sir Charles Mackerras fund to promote UK performances of major works by Czech and Slovak composers
The Dvořák Society for Czech and Slovak Music has established a new fund which we hope will encourage music colleges, universities and conservatoires to perform operas and major works by Czech or Slovak composers. We are particularly keen to support the staging in the UK of some of the lesser known operas. The creation of this fund has been made possible thanks to a generous bequest made to the Dvořák Society by the conductor, the late Sir Charles Mackerras, who was President of the Dvořák Society and a great advocate of Czech opera, particularly works by Leoš Janáček.
Grants will be awarded annually up to the value of £1000 and the Society can also offer further help by means of advice on repertoire, help with the Czech language or access to performing materials.
The Dvořák Society is keen to strengthen its links with the UK’s many music colleges and conservatoires and we would welcome informal enquiries about the application process for grants under this new fund to be made in the first instance to the Secretary, secretary@dvorak-society.org
