ZUŠ Open 2019
The Czech Republic boasts a unique network of art schools focused on music, ballet, drama and visual arts. The institutions, which are quite generously subsidized by the state, are open to kids from the age of five. Just recently, a nationwide project promoting the so-called "zušky" took place around the country, giving the children and their teachers a rare opportunity to show their skills to the public. The happening was initiated by the Magdalena Kožená Endowement Fund, which was established to promote art education in the Czech Republic.
420 art schools from more than 300 towns and municipalities around the country join in the third edition of the ZUŠ Open event, which will take place on May 31 and June 1. Thousands of people will attend open-air concerts, workshops and children’s performances and visit some of the schools, which opened their doors to the public.
Magdalena will personally attend ZUŠ Open event in Karlovy Vary, Pilsen and České Budějovice.
