The Prague Conservatoire has its own symphonic and chamber orchestras, several chamber music ensembles as well as a theatre company. Annually about 250 concerts (chamber, graduate, orchestral) are performed and 40 dramatic performances put on stage. The school is housed in three locations in the centre of the city. It is characterised by a unique atmosphere of creativity, enhanced by the rich musical life of the Czech capital, Prague, the city of Smetana, Dvořák, Janáček and Martinů, and the venue of the annual Prague Spring Music Festival. The school is located next to the Rudolphinum, the Neo-Renaissance home of the Czech Philharmonic. Further upstream is the monumental building of the National Theatre. Students at the Prague Conservatory thus spend six years in a major cultural centre offering ample opportunities to see and hear world's top musical stars and other leading artists. The Conservatory graduates often join the Czech Philharmonic, the National Theatre, the State Opera, the Prague Symphonic or the Radio Symphonic Orchestra. The unique tradition coupled with contemporary approach and professional qualification of the faculty have made the Prague Conservatory an attractive school for generations of students.
