Thank you everyone, who made our fourth annual Czech Gala – Chinaski concert such a great hit!
As you may know, the Czech School of California’s mission sets forth our dedication to offering children and adults of all ages and origins throughout the Bay Area a comprehensive education in the Czech language, history, geography and culture. Cultural, educational, and social events and activities for the local community are a crucial part of the work we do.
The Czech Gala is the biggest Czech cultural event in San Francisco and Bay area. Every year is different and every year brings bigger and bigger community together. We started with a traditional Gala event – sit down dinner in evening gowns. But as the community in San Francisco is very young in heart and ever changing, we quickly moved to a more relaxed event. Inviting someone, who is celebrated in the entire diverse community, while still keeping some of the most favorite parts of our Czech Gala – such as traditional Czech dinner, Czech wine and beer, Czech Slivovitz or popular raffle!

Chinaski’s warm hearts, endless energy, and familiar songs we could all sing along to gave the members of our community an unforgettably Czech night. This incredible concert in such an intimate setting was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for our guests, given that Chinaski sells out very large concert halls in the Czech Republic on a regular basis. We were also able to provide a night to remember for the kids: a fun movie night with other Czech-speaking children, and the opportunity to even sing along on stage with Chinaski themselves. This has become a valued Czech Gala tradition. Take a look at our video below!
As the Czech Gala is a gathering for community, we take feedback from the community very seriously. Every year we send out surveys about our setting, our performer and other aspects of the evening. We now know, that the band was a smashing hit but we also know and that we might be doing some changes to our setting of the actual event. If you would like to share your feedback to our event, please to our survey site here.
Once again, thank you everyone for coming and we hope to see you next year!
Your Czech School of California Team
