Collegium Marianum's patron club brings together friends and music supporters to help us present top musical and educational projects:
- IMF Summer Festivities of Early Music
- the Baroue Soirées concert cycle
- the international courses of the Versailles Academy
- music workshops for children and parents PICCOLI
Support for professional artists
who specialize in the interpretation of early music
The funds raised in 2020 are partially compensating members of the Collegium Marianum ensemble for loss of income due to cancelled concerts in the Czech Republic and abroad.
This enables them to devote their time to the preparation of new concerts and educational projects.
Support will be provided as grants.
Preference will be given to family breadwinners, single parents and families in which both partners are self-employed artists.

The Collegium Marianum Foundation was established in 1991 with the aim of developing Christian spiritual values and culture and also education and science in the fields of art, environmental protection and the preservation of cultural heritage monuments and traditions.
The Foundation’s activities are primarily focused on supporting artists and students in the field of early music interpretation and organizing cultural and educational events.
Emphasis is placed on educational activities for young musicians (international workshops and master classes) and for children and parents (music, dance and art workshops and musical-dramatic programs focused on folk traditions and customs).
In all the programs, the relationship to the place where the activities take place is thematized; the participants are guided to a knowledge of the place and respect for its history.
The Foundation is a co-organizer of numerous cultural events, such as the international music festival Summer Festivities of Early Music or the early music concert cycle Baroque Soirées.
The Foundation also has a long history of environmental protection, primarily in landscape conservation, the cultivation of the urban environment and restoration of traditional landscape gardening.
