“Performing at Carnegie Hall has always been a matter of prestige and reputation. An impressive list of musicians have performed at this prestigious concert hall since its construction in 1891, and the Zagreb Philharmonic ranks among the biggest. It is an honour to play on the stage on which history was written by world-class performers,” said a statement from the orchestra.
“In accordance with the ‘politics’ of Carnegie Hall, Zagreb Philharmonic Orchestra in New York will present not only Croatian excellence and culture, but also rich musical heritage and history, and in its jubilee 145th season will complete yet another valuable performance.”
