Philharmonic Ball

PHILHARMONIC BALL presented by Zagreb Philharmonic Orchestra Monday, 30th of December 2019, beginning at 20.30 Vatroslav Lisinski Concert Hall Production: Zagreb Philharmonic Orchestra   Performers: Zagreb Philharmonic Orchestra DAVID DANZMAYR conductor LANA KOS soprano   Waltz into the New Year at the Zagreb Philharmonic Orchestra's Philharmonic Ball.   PHILHARMONIC BALL   Philharmonic Ball is an annual event, a glamorous offshoot of traditional Viennese New Year's concerts. This year's proceedings will take place under the guidance of maestro David Danzmayr. Born in Austria, maestro Danzmayr was brought up in Europe's musical Mecca of Salzburg, reaching his musical maturity in a special atmosphere of traditional Viennese New Year galas, true building blocks of musical excellence that Austria is renowned for. With that in mind it's more than obvious that maestro Danzmayr is a perfect choice when it comes to creating an authentic atmosphere as well as managing a spectacle worthy of a true New Year's concert.   Zagreb Philharmonic Orchestra's Ball will shower you with some of the most beautiful New Year's waltzes, airs and polkas, each one of them transporting you back in time, to a long forgotten world of Viennese palaces and musical splendor full of recognizable New Year's melodies with their distinctive uplifting qualities that just beckon you to take to the dance-floor, with gems that include famous classics such as The Blue Danube and Radetzky March, the most recognizable among the many famous New Year's scores so beloved by audiences everywhere.   But the „New Year's Eve before actual New Year's Eve“ will not end with the final notes being played.   After the concert that will be held in the Main Hall, we extend the invitation to our audience to come and join us in the lobby, where our distinguished guests will have a chance to enjoy a whole host of famous musical numbers, dance evergreens and melodies we all cherish in our hearts, all performed by Zagreb Philharmonic Orchestra's Pop Ensemble. That in itself is a guarantee of a great time and a truly unique and festive atmosphere, one that the Philharmonic Ball is renowned for.   A gala spectacle such as this demands a distinctive dress code. Therefore Ladies and Gentlemen, put on your finest gowns and the most elegant black tuxedos, and enjoy a truly special evening just ahead of New Year's Eve.   Tickets for the Philharmonic Ball are available at the Zagreb Philharmonic Orchestra's box-office or at the ulaznice.hr with the price of 170 Kunas (II. category) and 220 (I. category) respectively.
