The Terezín Summer School is hosted by the Terezín Composers’ Institute and Musica non grata, an international music and cultural project of the Czech Republic and Germany, organised by the National Theatre and financially supported by the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany, at the former Terezín concentration camp. From August 16th to 19th, students from the Czech Republic and Germany will jointly trace the musical lives of artists persecuted by the Nazis in lectures, discussions and concerts. During the Terezín Summer School lectures by students and international lecturers are planned, among others by JUDr. Tomáš Kraus (Secretary of the Federation of Jewish Communities in the Czech Republic). Next to the conference, various classical music concerts will be performed by students from the Cologne University of Music and Dance.

The event will end on August 19th with a concert at the German Embassy in Prague.

The concerts programmes are compiled of compositions by authors who have spent a significant creative part of their lives in the Terezín ghetto. The evening city will be resounded tones by so-called Terezín composers: Hans Krása, Pavel Haas, Gideon Kleina and Viktor Ullmann, as well as a composer Ilse Weber, who left an indelible mark in the Terezín camp with her children songs. In addition to composers, who mostly laid down their lives in Terezín, the repertoire of concerts focuses on the female composers - works by Vítězslava Kaprálová, Marie Herz will be presented.  Audience will also hear the work by the greates Czech composers Leoš Janáček and Antonín Dvořák

Three of the four concerts will be performed by the student orchestra of the University of Music and Dance from Cologne under the lead of prof. Dr. Florence Millet.

The dramaturgy of student concerts was prepared jointly by prof. Dr. Florence Millet, Dr. Kai Hinrich Müller and prof. PHDr. Lubomír Spurný, Ph.D.

The partners of the event are Masaryk University, the City of Terezín, Terezín Memorial, Foundation for Holocaust Victims, EchoSpore, Deutsche Bank Stiftung, Stiftung Lichterfeld. Summer School in Terezín is supported by the Embassy of the Federal Republic Germany.
