Over the course of two consecutive weekends, 11/12 June and 18/19 June, 11 AM to 7 PM, Zagreb Botanical Garden will be hosting Biljke i Svirke (Plants & Music), a new event which will combine music and nature in a new and original way, thus ensuring visitors get a unique, pop-up musical experience in a very special location.
During two special weekends, Zagreb Botanical Garden will become the city’s own outdoor concert hall and a musical oasis in the heart of the city. In this intimate and relaxed atmosphere, professional musicians and students of Zagreb Music Academy will be performing works of some of the most important composers and musicians in history, including Mozart, Bach, Debussy, Chopin, Frank Sinatra, the Beatles and Louis Armstrong. Scheduled performances will be covering a wide range of genres from classical and jazz to rock.
Antique pianos, violins, saxophones and trumpets will fit in perfectly in the beautiful surroundings of the Zagreb Botanical Garden. Visitors will be invited to discover several concert locations within the garden, where they will be able to enjoy the music. Before and after these small, intimate concerts, visitors will be encouraged to play themselves,thus becoming active participants in the event, and maybe even discovering hidden talents of their own.
The event will be free for all visitors, and the program will last from 11am-19pm.
More information about the event is available on Facebook.
