First symphony concert of the Music for the future project with soloist Gidon Kremer

As part of the humanitarian and social project Music for the future, we are pleased to announce his first symphony concert with internationally renowned violinist Gidon Kremer, which will take place on 11 May 2022 at Cankarjev dom.

By attending the concert, you will support young talents, help other Ukrainian children and experience a unique concert event with the musical transcendence of one of the world's best violinists, Gidon Kremer.

Young musical talents from Ukraine will join forces with young musicians from Slovenia under the auspices of the Slovenian Youth Orchestra and Živa Ploj Peršuh, conductor and artistic director. The children and young people on stage will enjoy the invaluable support of soloist Gidon Kremer, a 75-year-old Grammy Award-winning violinist who is one of the very top of the art music world. On this occasion, the organisers have joined forces with UNICEF Slovenia. Preparations for the concert took the form of masterclasses and workshops with renowned musicians from various European symphony orchestras, such as the Dresden Philharmonic, the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Nuremberg Philharmonic and the Orchestra Maggio Musicale, as well as numerous soloists.

The concert event is a demonstration and proof of the desire of children and young people from Ukraine to integrate into a new environment. Through music, interpersonal bonds and solidarity are strengthened. It shows that it is possible to co-create and understand each other. The support of the audience means that each of them is seen, listened to and heard, not only as young artists, but as people with a perspective.
