Prague Summer Nights 2021: Covid-19 Statement

Prague Summer Nights and Classical Movements continue to closely monitor COVID-19 developments both in the United States and in the Czech Republic. While the situation is constantly changing and may look very different between now and June, we are continuing to plan the Prague Summer Nights Festival in the Czech Republic for the summer of 2021. We are hopeful that  mitigation efforts and a vaccine will allow the festival to proceed as planned, and we will continue to update our safety protocols in the months leading up to PSN to ensure the well being of students, faculty, and staff during the festival.

We are offering students accepted into the program flexible payment and cancellation terms. If the 2021 festival is cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions in either the United States or the Czech Republic, or if participants are unable to travel due to COVID-19 restrictions, participants will be offered full refunds of tuition costs, as well as the opportunity to hold their spot for the 2022 festival.

We understand how difficult it has been to go a year without live performances and we want our participants to have the opportunity to learn and perform in person. We know that no festival  offers performances in more beautiful and historic venues than Prague Summer Nights. This year it will be even more wonderful to perform live in such venues. We are also making contingency plans for a festival to be held here in the United States during the summer of 2021, should it be necessary to cancel the festival in Prague. Participants will then have the option to cancel, save their spot for 2022 or join our United States program.

Thank you,

Neeta Helms – President and CEO, Prague Summer Nights Festival, Founder and President, Classical Movements
