If you love classical music, do not miss concerts by the Prague Philharmonia (Pražská komorní filharmonie – PKF), one of the best orchestras in the Czech Republic. The Prague Philharmonia (PKF) holds concerts of classical music not only in Prague but also takes part in festivals all over the Czech Republic and regularly performs abroad, where it has gained a great reputation. World-renowned conductor Jiří Bělohlávek, under whose leadership the orchestra quickly developed into one of the best Czech orchestras, formed this top orchestra in 1994. The current conductor and music director of the Prague Philharmonia is Jakub Hrůša. The PKF has had long-term success with both critics and audiences alike. This success has been confirmed also by many recording contracts for major international labels. The concerts of this young orchestra, whose average age is a mere 34 years, take place in various concert halls all over Prague. You can find out about the current program of the PKF from its website mentioned below. It is also worth mentioning that as the first orchestra in the Czech Republic, the PKF started holding special concerts for children and their parents, which are very popular and Rudolfinum's Dvořák Hall is regularly sold out. The orchestra has recently expanded its successful cycle of concerts for school groups to include concerts for schools in English that are similarly designed especially for children accompanied by their parents. Actors from the Divadlo D21 ensemble expertly provide educational entertainment for children throughout the concerts. At the children's club Notička, designated for children between 4 and 13 years and which was created by PKF as another quality activity for children, children learn to know musical instruments, meet musicians and develop other esthetic skills such as drawing and theatrical activities.
