Open-Air Concert Spectacle
 Open-Air Concert Spectacle

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.

In New Belgrade’s Block 13, on the lot near the Palace of Serbia where the orchestra’s future concert hall will be built, tens of thousands of people will have the chance to hear the performance of the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra.
The audience will get to decide on the orchestra’s repertoire by voting on the BPO website for their favorite compositions from a list of 25 pieces, which will then be included in the concert programme for that night. The list of music pieces offered by the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra includes the most popular classical music compositions, such as Bizet’s Carmen, Ravel’s Bolero, waltzes by Strauss and Shostakovich, Mambo from the West Side Story and The Imperial March from Star Wars, as well as Konjović’s The Great Chochek Dance and Hristić’s Turtledove.

The Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra is inviting music lovers from all around Serbia, especially families with children, to this grand concert picnic, in which they will enjoy the most beautiful classical music numbers. The orchestra’s open-air concert 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, provision of top-notch audio and lighting equipment.
The Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra’s regular season performances are traditionally sold out very quickly – in the upcoming season 2017/18, more than 20,000 tickets were sold within just four weeks. 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 the best Serbian 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.
