Today, the LADO ensemble is embarking on its traditional Christmas tour, during which they will hold concerts in Šibenik, Otočac, Rijeka, Sv. Ivan Zelina, Zagreb and Varaždin.

The one-hour Christmas program called Srićna noć je prispila was prepared by the artistic director of the LADO Ensemble Krunoslav Šokac and the music director – conductor Bojan Pogrmilović. 

The program contains 19 musical numbers arranged by some of the most famous music arrangers – Božo Potočnik, Tomislav Uhlik, Ivica Ivanković, Dražen Kurilovčan, Joško Ćaleta, Dinko Fia, Zoran Jakunić and Branko Ivanković. 

The repertoire includes well-known Croatian Christmas songs such as Veselje ti navješćujem, Oj diješce moje drago and Radujte se narodi, but also lesser-known arrangements of Christmas folk songs and melodies belonging to the ancient layer of Croatian traditional and church folk music practice. Thus, well-known and lesser-known Christmas carols from Hrvatsko Zagorje, Turopolje, Slavonia, Baranja, Međimurje, Gradišće, Dalmatia and Dubrovnik will be heard.

On the eve of the Rijeka concert, at 5.30 pm in the Marble Hall of the Maritime and Historical Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka, the musicians of the LADO Ensemble will hold a presentation of traditional instruments. 

Those interested in attending need to register by e-mail [email protected] by December 15, 2021 at 3 p.m.
