Summer Orchestra Camp 2023



August 2023

The Event

Our Summer Orchestra Camp (POK) laid the foundations for young musicians and welcomed 97 talented individuals aged 12 to 22. Thanks to the generous support of Krka d.d. and Sava Re, d.d., young Slovenian musicians from flood-affected areas and children from Ukraine who have found refuge in Slovenia were able to join the camp free of charge.
Their participation enriched our cultural tapestry, and together they formed the Slovenian Youth Orchestra (SMO). The highlight of the week was a stunning concert on the big stage of the Križanke in Ljubljana, featuring world-renowned artist Ute Lemper.
