After success of the concert called Tribute to Jarmila Novotná in 2015 we have initiated in the cooperation with the International Music Festival Prague Spring, we coorganized it also in 2016.
At the concert with the same title held within the 71st year of the festival performed this year’s debutante of the Teatro alla Scala and the famous soprano, Martina Janková.
