The American Czechoslovak Landmarks Trust Society is composed of a diverse group of persons living and working in both Europe and America, who are concerned in various capacities with the arts, culture, history and landmarks of the Slavonic world and its diaspora. From professional Marionette artists in Plzen, Chrudim and Ostrava, to real estate agents in Ohio, Ontario and Oklahoma, from Czech festival goers in Temple, Texas, to building preservationists in the ancient city of Prague, we promote the Czechoslovak and all-Slavonic culture and the arts, so the future may learn from the past. Our Slavonic brethren, from Volgograd to Warsaw, from Moscow, Texas, to Moscow in Russia, from Kiev in the Ukraine, to Kiev in Pennsylvania, from Libuše, Louisiana, to Libuše at Vyšehrad, from Ivaylo of the southern Slavs to Oleg of Novgorod of the eastern Slavs, we have a mission to protect and preserve our heritage.
Operated exclusively for educational and charitable purposes within the meaning of IRS Publication 557 Section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”) or the corresponding section of any future federal tax code, the American Czechoslovak Landmarks Trust Corporation is an Oklahoma not-for-profit public service corporation with transnational leadership.
In 1918 the very old nation of the Czechoslovak people came together under the latest political union called Československo (in English: "Czechoslovakia").
The exhuberant fanfare music of Leoš Janáček: SINFONIETTA, written in 1926, conveys the celebration of yet another new fresh start for a very old nation and people.
Here Moravian Jakub Hrůše conducts the magnificent Czech Philharmonic bolstered by the brass of the Czech Army.
