BPO musicians Jelena Dragnić (first violin), Vladan Lončar (second violin), Boris Brezovac (viola) and Aleksandar Latković (violoncello) founded the BPO String Quartet in 2011. The have been committedly transferring the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra’s energy trying to reach out to all those living far from Belgrade.
“Our goal is to make every town feel like ‘the capital’, at least while we are in them, because of the art and music we bring to them. Hopefully, all Serbian cities will be equally important and capital is they foster the culture. Our mission is to always remind the people of this”, said Jelena Dragnić on behalf of the Belgrade Philharmonic String Quartet.
After last year’s successful tour in the south, the audience in the north of Serbia will also be able to enjoy top-notch musical programmes. By implementing these projects, the orchestra is showing that it does not belong solely to Belgrade and that it aspires to contribute to cultural development of all local communities. The musicians will conclude the mini tour with a visit to the ‘Kolevka’ Home for Children with Disabilities in Subotica.
