Do you want to make your Autumn nicer with some musical classics? Or rather with hip-hop, jazz, electronic or soul music? We have good news for you if you do. The 23th year of the multi-genre musical festival titled Strings of Autumn has started in Prague. The festival will take place until November 13th.

The Strings of Autumn festival was kicked off by the charismatic British singer Laura Mvula. This beautiful diva showed off in Prague for the very first time, alongside the Brno Philharmonic Orchestra and the Czech-Slovak jazz trio Levíček–Uhrík–Novák. The 30-year-old artist, dubbed Nina Simone, took many a fan's breath away with her outstanding voice.

Who and what can you look forward to?

If you missed Laura, you certainly don't have to despair. There are many days left before the end of the festival, bringing the chance to see many more, different artists. At Convent of Saint Agnes you can be a part of a double Prague premier of an icon, Fred Hersch, playing jazz piano. First, he'll blow you away by his solo recital, then a concert of his trio.

The festival doesn't only present foreign artists, though. Tickets to Jiří Suchý's recital sold like hotcakes. Strings of Autumn is fulfilling Šlitr's wish in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of his passing with a project centered around the still-living esteemed musician Jiří Suchý, the other half of the famous duo.
