Our two New Year’s concerts on December 24 and 25 have been sold out — in just one day! Traditionally, the huge buzz created around our most popular and joyous performances, was not lacking this year either, and for the end of 2021, the Belgrade Philharmonic has prepared a “Music Bazaar,” taking its audience on a musical journey to different parts of the world.

Even the low temperatures did not prevent the most persistent music aficionados from getting to the Belgrade Philharmonic’s box-office, even though tickets were also available online. Those who were lucky enough to get tickets will have the unique opportunity of traveling and visiting musical cultures from different parts of the world at our “Music Bazaar.” The festive atmosphere will be accompanied by the sounds of Jewish klezmer music, the Arabic longa, Portuguese folk music, along with songs from classical literature, including Brahms, Borodin, and others.

A special guest of our New Year’s concerts will be Kari Kriikku, a clarinet virtuoso whose performances have delighted audiences around the world, all under the baton of Maestro Daniel Raiskin, the Belgrade Philharmonic’s permanent guest conductor.

The safety health measures that the Belgrade Philharmonic has been implementing since the beginning of the 2021/22 season will also apply to our New Year’s concerts, which means admission with certificates of vaccination, past illness, or negative tests, and the obligatory distance between visitors in Kolarac Hall.
