WASBE Conference is a unique festival of symphonic wind music, hosting the best wind bands and ensembles, conductors, musicians and music experts from around the world. This biennial event has taken place in different cultural centres all over the globe for the last 40 years. The WASBE Conference Prague 2022 will be a special one, thanks to its link to Karel Husa, the Pulitzer Prize winner and one of the most important composers for symphonic wind, and also because of its unique location on an island in the heart of his beloved Prague. The World Association for Symphonic Bands and Ensembles (WASBE) is the only international organization of wind band conductors, composers, performers, publishers, teachers, instrument makers and friends of wind music. It is completely dedicated to enhancing the quality of wind bands throughout the world and exposing their members to new worlds of repertoire, musical culture, people and places.

The WASBE Conference 2022 will take place on the Slavonic Island and in its Žofín Palace, a very special venue in the heart of Prague, situated next to the National Theatre on the Vltava River. The whole palace will be exclusively dedicated to the WASBE event, and the surrounding garden, the whole island and other venues in the historical centre of Prague will host the open-air concerts and fringe programme. The neo-Renaissance Žofín Palace is one of the most important cultural and social centres in Prague. Concerts, conferences, and balls are held here. The Great Hall of the Žofín Palace regularly hosts the most important personalities from the economic, political, and cultural life of the Czech Republic and from abroad. In November, 1882 Bedřich Smetana’s cycle of symphonic poems, My Homeland (Má Vlast), was performed here for the first time.

If you wish to perform at the WASBE Conference Prague 2022, APPLY HERE by December 15, 2020! Groups can still attend the event as guests and there will be a ‘fringe festival’ as well.
