On 25 June, the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra will give the biggest ever open-air concert of classical music in the Serbian history, directed by the orchestra’s new Chief Conductor Gabriel Feltz.
We are inviting the audience to vote for the compositions they would like to listen to that night by choosing from a list of 25 pieces at www.bgf.rs/glasanje.
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 the New Belgrade Block 13, near the Palace of Serbia.
The BPO 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.
For all those who have never visited the concert hall of the Ilija M. Kolarac Foundation – the orchestra’s current residence, the open-air concert is an opportunity to hear our orchestra on the site where the construction will soon start of the new concert hall, which will be able to receive many more visitors than the current venue.
