Musicians conquer Slovenian public
Concert by the State Chamber Orchestra of Belarus in Ljubljana a success
Belarusian musicians have taken part in this prestigious musical forum for the second time. The Slovenian audience appreciates performances by the famous Belarusian band. At the concert in Ljubljana, the Chamber Orchestra played pieces by renowned Belarusian and foreign composers for the pleasure of the Slovenian audience.
Belarus is taking part in the Ljubljana Festival of Classical Music and Art for the fourth time and the organisers of the event will invite Belarusian bands in the future. The recent participation of Belarusian musicians is possible owing to the support of the Belarusian Embassy in Slovenia and Slovenia’s Riko, which has been operating on the Belarusian market for a long time.
The Ljubljana International Festival of Classical Music and Art is one of the biggest and most prestigious festivals in Central and Eastern Europe. It was organised for the first time in 1953 and, at present, is one of the most important regional art events. Among its participants were the Vienna Philharmonic, the Munich Philharmonic, the New York Philharmonic, Teatro alla Scala, the Bolshoi Opera and Ballet Theatre of Russia. In recent years, the festival programme includes up to 80 various musical events attended by about 80,000 people.
