A Brno native who conquered the world. Saxophonist, conductor, composer, bandleader, singer, manager, husband, father, mushroom picker, football fan, patriot. Gustav Brom was all that and much more.
May marks 100 years since his birth, and even though he only moved to Brno when he was 12, his name and that of his orchestra are inseparably linked to Brno. He’s also one of the musicians whose legacies helped Brno to get designated as a UNESCO City of Music.
Learn about his life, get to know the places where you could have seen him, and mainly don’t forget to listen to his timeless music. All brought to you by TIC BRNO in cooperation with its partners.
