Jana Semerádová is the artistic director of the Collegium Marianum ensemble and programming director of the concert cycle Baroque Soirées and the international music festival Summer Festivities of Early Music. She is engaged in intensive research both at home and abroad and in the study of Baroque gesture, declamation, and dance.
