Mövenpick Resort & Spa Jimbaran Bali will host a ‘Ten Strings’ Charity Concert on 9 May 2017 in support of the ‘Yayasan Peduli Autisme Bali’, a local non- governmental organisation which welcomes parents who would like to share and consult about the day to day care of children with autism. The foundation also established ‘Rumah Belajar Autis Sarwahita’ where parents can enrol their children with autism to receive regular therapy as well as non-formal education.

In partnership with the Embassy of the Czech Republic, the concert will showcase classical music performances from two respected Czech musicians, Jaroslav Svěcený (violinist) and Miloslav Klaus (guitarist). Concert tickets are IDR 300,000/person and include a 30-minute cocktail session prior to the 90-minute concert. A portion of proceeds from this charity concert will go to ‘Yayasan Peduli Autisme Bali’ to help the funding of the new building for ‘Rumah Belajar Autis Sarwahita’.

‘Yayasan Peduli Autisme Bali’ was initiated by several parents of children with autism along with teachers who were concerned on the shortfall of facilities in Bali that provide information regarding autism. It was started as ‘Perhimpunan Peduli Autisme Bali’ in 2004 and has actively held multiple seminars to educate Bali’s society in having more understanding on the management and care requirements of children with autism. They started to receive requests from parents to provide and help with autism therapy which resulted in the transition of the association into a registered foundation named ‘Yayasan Peduli Autisme Bali’ in 2012.

Jaroslav Svěcený is one of the most notable contemporary Czech violinists and a unique personality in the Czech, as well as global, music scene. He is renowned for popularizing violin, and his television, radio, and concert projects are attracting audience of all ages. To date, Jaroslav Svěcený has recorded 44 albums with works of greatest international and Czech composers, many of which have been awarded gold or platinum discs.
Miloslav Klaus studied at the State Conservatory in Prague and then continued at the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague, focusing on the classical guitar. In 1980s, he won several awards at international performance competitions, the most important being the third place and laureate title from the Concours International de Guitare competition in Paris. He has recorded over 10 albums and since 2005, he has served as director of the Charlotte Masaryk Elementary Art School in Prague 6.

“We are delighted to partner with the Embassy of the Czech Republic to present two eminent musicians and hold such an honourable event together,” said Mövenpick Resort & Spa Jimbaran Bali’s General Manager, Mr Horst Walther-Jones. “We are pleased to have the opportunity to host this extraordinary concert while contributing to society.”
