The Antonín Dvořák Music Festival can boast of a long tradition during which its organisers have managed to establish its position among top class cultural events of first-rate importance at its venues. It emerged in 1969 from the initiative of the Antonín Dvořák Society and the District Cultural Centre in Příbram. In 2015 the festival was transformed and the hosting was taken over by non-profit organisation Dvořákovo Příbramsko. In average the festival programme encompasses ten concerts, which in addition to the A. Dvořák works also present compositions of the 18th and 19th century masters as well as musical work of contemporary composers (20th and 21st century), whereas the concerts take place in very attractive venues of the region: Antonín Dvořák Memorial in Vysoká, Basilica at Svatá Hora, Church of Jacob the Elder, Ernestinum Mansion (František Drtikol Gallery), Březnice Chateau, Dobříš Chateau and others. Concert series is accompanied by many events (opera performance for children, open air concerts, programmes for schools, seniors, etc.). Prestigious status of the festival is also confirmed by the willingness of artists to present their compositions for the first time at the festival, or, in some cases the even create their artwork for the festival theme.
