Concert at the International Big Band festival in Pardubice

On the 16.10.2021 the Czech National Concert Band performed at the International Big Band Festival, which took place in Pardubice for the first time in its history. Our orchestra performed at the closing ceremony at the Suk Hall of the House of Music (Sukova Síň, Dům hudby). Our program consisted of many interesting pieces which were carefully selected with respect to the theme of the festival. Under the baton of Jaroslav Šíp, you could hear such wonderful pieces as the Rhapsody in Blue by George Gershwin, Danzon No. 2 by Arturo Marquez or the Suit in Eb for Military Band by Gustav Holst. We also performed few pieces for soprano saxophone with the famous soloist Mr. Felix Slováček.
