    Greetings from Prague

    After a whirlwind time rehearsing and recording in Olomouc for Competition, today Petr, Andz and I went to Prague. We met with Mr. Pycha, Managing Director who works with the Prague Symphony and the Czech National Symphony. Mr. Pycha gave us a tour of Dvorak Hall inside the Rudolfinum. We spent a while there and met with Mr. Slezak the Chief Engineer and made recording arrangements. After a brief drink at a sidewalk cafe, we were given a tour of Smetana Hall inside the Prague Municipal House. We saw the Prague Music Academy and the Estate Theatre where Mozart premiered his Magic Flute and Don Giovanni. We played tourist for the remainder of the day.

    I ducked into an internet cafe and thought I would drop you a short note.

    Prague is a very musical as well as a beautiful city. Perhaps an ideal place for a GPO Convention ?

    Hope you are all doing well and keeping out of trouble

    Sounds like a wondeful trip Gary. Enjoy! Hope you (or someone with you) has been able to take some photos you could share with us. I've been to Europe four times, but unfortunately never to that area.

    Have a safe trip home!

    Just to be in the same room as someone like Mozart must have been extremely emotional, it would be for me. WOW!
