DSA Winter Charity Gala Concert - 2021
Unfortunately, due to the pandemic we have not been able to hold the Christmas bazaar for the past two years. This year, however, with our commitment to support local charities we organized a Winter Charity Gala Concert featuring prominent Czech musicians. The intimate concert was held at the Troja Chateau in Prague at December 4th, with participation from 35 countries.
In the past couple of years, because of the current situation these charities have experienced a greater need of funds and support, and the DSA is honored to be partnering with them. From the evening, DSA awarded three (totaling six after additionally awarding three in February) Czech Charities grants for their proposed projects.
Recently, art and music has suffered greatly as a result of concerts and shows being cancelled, and audiences thinning out.
The DSA Charity Gala concert was a great opportunity to experience classical music with deep roots and wonderful performances at a breath-taking venue and all for a good cause in these uncertain times.
