King Tomislav square has been undergoing an overall renovation for the last few months, the first one in a hundred years, and to celebrate its grand re-opening the City of Zagreb has organized a series of free classical concert on it.
Zagreb Classic is a completely new festival that will showcase some of the best orchestras and philharmonics in country, as well as few of our own classical super-stars (that’s kind of an odd thing to say these days). The highlight of the festival (to those not very keen on classical music) will definitely be a concert by the world famous duo 2Cellos on July 2nd. Luka Šulić and Stjepan Hauser will, like the rest of the musicians, play a free concert for the city where they started their careers.
The festival starts on June 25th and lasts until July 13th. Performances are scheduled as such:
Symphony Orchestra of the Croatian National Television
Zagreb Academy Symphony Orchestra and Choir
JOSIP ŠTOLCER SLAVENSKI: RELIGIOPHONY (Symphony of the Orient) for soloists, choir and orchestra
2Cellos – concert for the 5th anniversary of the band
Symphonic Brass Orchestra of the Croatian Army feat. Šibenik Singing Society KOLO – concert in honor of 950 years of the city of Šibenik
TOLGA KASHIF: THE QUEEN SYMPHONY
Chamber ensembles from Slovenian and Zagreb Philharmonics
Croatian National Theater’s soloists, choir and orchestra – concert in honor of 450th anniversary of the Battle of Szighet
