For the first time in their history the famous Pillow Concerts will make a debut in Plovdiv at the Regional History Museum. The brass quintet with trumpeters Yan Dunev and Kostas Gkyavouris, together with Branimir Krandzhalov (French horn), Yavor Kostov (trombone) and Georgi Iliev (tuba) have prepared a fascinating programme with a selection of some of the most applauded pieces in their repertoire. The programme will include popular opera pieces, fiery Spanish rhythms and inspiring jazz compositions. All our guests are invited to join in with maracas, castanets, small drums, tambourines, and other percussion instruments available at home. It will not be the first concert in which our audience would play along with the musicians but this time it is highly unlikely that the brass quintet would be overpowered!

The traditional Pillow Workshop will precede each of the two concerts – at 10 a.m. and 16 p.m., respectively. Attendance is free of charge for our audience.

There are good, bad, beautiful, ugly, clever, smart, chatty, shy, enchanting… witches. Some call them sorceresses, others – fairies. But the exact terminology does not matter at all. The important thing is that one is never bored in their company as they would always do something unusual. At the first Pillow Concert for the season, we expect three of them. Will they arrive on brooms, flying carpets or through the lately-so-fashionable teleportation? We will soon find out. And while fighting for the most wanted prince in the kingdom, they have promised us some music by the greatest magician among the composers – Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Along with his opera The Magic Flute we will also enjoy excerpts from The Wizard of Oz and from some other magical musicals. However, enjoyable things will not only happen on stage. We invite our audience to come dressed up in their wildest costumes for which, of course, we have prepared special prizes.
