The Double Life of Jan Peřuška

The journey of a violinist / sports reporter.

It’s an age-old quesiton people face: sports or music. Few people blur this boundary, daring to merge the two fields. Here, Jan Peřuška is one of of those few trailblazers, following the career of a sports journalist whilst being one of the most accomlpished violinists in Prague.

Jan began playing the violin after his parents, his father a very accomplished musician himself, encouraged him to follow their passions. “I was five and my younger brother was four years old,” he says, showing us family photographs. When asked how he sees himself, a musician or a sports reporter first, he replies “I like both ways, and by fortune I can do both things! I can’t imagine my life without music or sport.”
