Summer Pillow Concert


Sunday, August 14th, 2016
11 A.M.
Beli Brezi Children Centre
Sofia, Vitosha Mountain Park



We couldn’t possibly send away the summer without paying tribute to its sunny melody with a Summer Pillow Concert. Music will meet the happy summer spirit at the Beli Brezi Children Centre’s lawn in Vitosha Mountain Park with the help of a string quartet consisting of exceptional musicians. The first violin player Sancar Sapaev will lead his colleagues Evgeni Noev (also violin), Valentin Toshev (viola) and Dimitar Tenchev (violoncello) in a performance of some of the most famous compositions inspired by the summer season. Besides music by Vivaldi, Piazzolla and Gershwin, we will also hear pieces by Mozart, Elgar, Shostakovich, Bizet, and many others.

The Beli Brezi Children Centre is located on the road from Boyana neighbourhood to the Zlatni mostove locality, 1 km after the turn for the Kopitoto. Summer Pillow Concert will start at 11a.m. and an hour earlier the participants in the Art Summer on Vitosha will be presented. The children who took part in the “Painting” week will show their works in a exhibition. The young artists from the Music week will present a concert with the pieces they have learnt. The movie shot during the Cinema week will be shown to guests for the first time.
The artistic pillows fair will attract our most admired partners with their delicious and interesting suggestions for a family lunch in nature.
