Grand Finale – Police Symphony Orchestra

Castle Courtyard

July 2022
3. July 2022

Since 2010, an unmistakeable and unoverhearable phenomenon of 65 young musicians has appeared on the Czech concert scene, collaborating with leading Czech artists and selling out one concert venue after another. For several years, a full-feature time-lapse documentary has been filmed about this exceptional musical ensemble in co-production with Czech Television. For the culmination of 64th Smetana’s Litomyšl, the orchestra and its guests have prepared a unique show that will combine a number of musical genres with the unique space of the castle courtyard. The Grand Finale under the baton of the Police Symphony Orchestra will be vibrant, surprising, spectacular, emotional and butterfly-like – just the way these folks are!

“Do you know the feeling when you meet a person with whom you “feel it exactly the same way”, you brutally enjoy what and how they do and you feel that if you do it together, it can entertain and amuse a lot of other people? Well, I’ve now met someone like that, a sixty-head by estimate, and its coordinated co-existence, enthusiasm, passion and art have struck me deeply and permanently. Musically and humanely, an ensemble supremely likeable to all in peace. I ❤️ Police Symphony Orchestra!“

frequently asked questions

Bad Weather…
The performance takes place outdoors. If the usually pleasant summer skies aren’t obliging, an awning will take a few minutes to silently roll into place over the heads of the audience. Therefore, the performance will go ahead even if it rains. A few raindrops may fall in spots in Section C, which is why tickets for this section are sold for a discounted price.

We want do everything possible to make things easy for people in wheelchairs. Therefore, to purchase tickets, please contact Jitka at or +420 602 457 338.

Tour of Smetana’s Birthplace
It’s almost as if intermission was created just for visiting Smetana’s birthplace, as it’s directly on the grounds.
