Tomáš Kačo is a talented pianist, composer, and singer. He studied piano at the Janáček Conservatory in Ostrava and received a master’s degree in classical piano at the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague (2008-2015). On scholarship at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA (2015-2017), he earned a diploma in contemporary writing and music. As a solo pianist, his unique style is an interesting fusion of classical, jazz and gypsy music. His piano recitals are based on improvisation. The main idea of these improvisations is a “renaissance” of gypsy music, often improvising on traditional gypsy themes. He has collaborated for many years with renowned teacher and singer Ida Kelarová. They released a CD together called Roma Ballad. Additionally, he has made arrangements of songs for the Pardubice Philharmonic, the Philharmonic of Hradec Králové, and the Janáček Philharmonic in Ostrava. His objective in life is to compose, produce and arrange music of all styles. He says, “I hope one day my music will help make peace in the world and erase color lines.” He has performed for former Czech President Václav Havel, as well as at the renowned Vienna Opera Ball in Austria. Furthermore, he received the Piano Department Achievement Award for outstanding musicianship. As a pianist, he has performed in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, Hungary, Slovakia, and Israel.
