Capuchin Monastery, Prague, Loretánské náměstí, from 7 pm

“50” at Capuchins

Someone once contended that Jakub was a monk in his past life. If it is true Jakub will celebrate his 50th birthday in style – he is going to perform at Capuchin Monastery. The cause for that was given by stories My Family Études (Moje rodinné etudy) by Magdalena Strejčková, recorded on CD and accompanied by Jakub Zahradník’s music. The same thing will happen at Capuchins – the author will read her stories and Jakub will accompany her on the piano. The whole event is organized by Radka Rozkovcová from Christian Radio Proglas. The proceeds from this beneficial event will go to the school for people with mental and multiple disability Modrý klíč o. p .s (Blue Key)  http://www.modry-klic.cz/.
