Dear Camerata SMO musicians!
An exciting project called ALARM is on the horizon, to be performed at Križanke on 7 June 2022. The theme is green futures and the future of young people, and of course, very appropriately for the time, solidarity.
That's why we will hold both concerts together with UNICEF, and donate the funds raised to Ukrainian children.
In the first part, we will perform a reinterpretation of Vivaldi's (Uncertain) Four Seasons, this time in the Ljubljana 2050 version, which we have acquired from our Australian partners. The soloist will once again be Maja Horvat whom we are very much looking forward to.
This piece is also for strings and percussion and we plan to perform it with the same ensemble as in Kino Šiška for Glasgow.
In the second part we will expand the orchestra to a symphony orchestra. Matija Krečič is already working hard on the arrangements. The orchestra will be joined by Slovenian rappers of the younger generation (Vazz, Ghet, Emkej, ... all 15 of them). The lead vocalist and rapper on stage with us will be Masayah, who, together with her colleagues, has also arranged, composed and arranged 8 songs, 8 lyrics based on Slovenian rebel poetry. This will also be part of a new book, a collection of poems, which will be published on this occasion by Beletrina, and is entitled H2SO4.
The entire multimedia concert will be directed by Matej Filipčič.
We invite you to join the project, here is the planned timetable:
Friday, 3.6., afternoon
Saturday, 4.6., dop/pop
Sunday, 5.6., Mon/Fri
Monday, 6.6. Main exercise in the afternoon
Tuesday, 7.6., Dress rehearsal at 14.00, Concert at 20.00
Please log in to the form.
At the same time, we would like to inform you that in May we will have a concert with our Slovenian musicians united with young musicians from Ukraine (16-23 years old), who are in Slovenia under the umbrella of the Slovenian Youth Orchestra.
The concert is a thank you to all the national and international donors and sponsors who make it possible for these young people, who are on the run because of the situation, to have accommodation, food and music activities.
Our invitation was accepted by the famous cellist Gidon Kremer, who will be the soloist of the evening.
This is not to be missed, as he (and his assistant) will be working intensively with a small ensemble of string players.
The concert will take place in Cankarjev Dom's Gallus Hall on 11 May 2022 at 20.00.
