Prague Proms 2021 - James Newton Howard [CANCELLED]


As can be read in an email sent by the organization to ticket holders for the concert:

“Dear friends and supporters of the Prague Proms festival,


We did our best to keep our promise and perform the James Newton Howard Live in Concert on July 9, 2021.


The dramaturgy of the festival overcomes new obstacles, it must constantly cope with the uncertainty that we all are facing with.


Unfortunately, the current epidemiological situation still does not favor cultural events.


A concert of this scope, in addition with the participation of a foreign guest, requires the completion of partial steps several months in advance.


Uncertainty is amplified by the limited cross-border movement of persons.


We must also take into account the development of the epidemic abroad, where the performers come from.


After careful consideration, we decided to cancel the concert.


As a replacement, we offer you a voucher in the value of your tickets.


You can use the voucher not only when buying tickets for INTERNATIONAL MUSIC FESTIVAL PRAGUE PROMS concerts, but also for concerts of the CZECH NATIONAL SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA.


The voucher can be used to purchase tickets online on our websites and, or via phone or e-mail: +420 774 377 523,


The voucher is valid until December 31, 2023.


We appreciate your trust and we apologize for the inconvenience.


If you prefer another solution, we will try to accommodate you.


We will be happy to answer your questions by e-mail or by phone at +420 774 377 523 every weekday from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.


We will be happy if you reply to this e-mail if the proposed solution suits you.


Thank you for your understanding.”


Bad news, and let’s hope that this does not affect the concert that James Newton Howard has in London on June 4, 2021 with the Philharmonia Orchestra, which is currently still going on and has tickets available. Fingers crossed!
