On 25 June, the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra is giving the biggest ever open-air classical music concert in the history of Serbia, under the baton of its new Chief Conductor Gabriel Feltz.
The Audience Has Chosen the Programme of the Open-Air Concert
Zubin Mehta to Conduct the Finale of the Open-Air Concert
Audience from all over the country, especially families with children, are more than welcome to join us for this great concert picnic, in which they will enjoy the most beautiful classical music numbers, at the site where the orchestra’s new concert hall will be built – in New Belgrade Block 13, in the field between the Ušće Shopping Centre and the Palace of Serbia.
Entrance to the site will be from Nikola Tesla Blvd. and from Ušće Street. The gates open at 5pm and the concert will start at 8pm. Public transportation will be redirected to Mihajlo Pupin Blvd, whereas if you are coming by car, the city services recommend parking lots at Sava Centar and the Kombank Arena. Entry will not be permitted to bicycles, and it is also not recommended to bring pets.
Bringing food and beverages is allowed, except in glass containers/packaging. Visitors are encouraged to bring blankets or similar sitting mats, while smaller-sized folding chairs will also be permitted.
The BPO free-of-charge open-air concert, which is expected to attract tens of thousands of people, is not solely a huge endeavour from the artistic point of view, but also an immense production challenge, which entails the preparation of the site, design and construction of the stage and the installation of top-notch audio and lighting equipment.
