Union of the Architects
Sofia, 11 Krakra str.


After the great success at the Forest Pillow Concert, the Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra is visiting us again to bring joy and happiness with a spectacular festive programme. The Christmas Pillow Ball is, of course, for dancing, so little and grown-ups will hear Tchaikovsky’s Flower Waltz, Johann Strauss’s Kaiser-Waltz, Dvorak’s Slavic Dances, among other choices of the virtuoso orchestra. This time, the string ensemble will be lead by the magical violinist, the concertmaster Ivailo Danailov. Besides the queen of all instruments, after the concert everyone curious will be able to meet the noble viola, the singing violoncello and the giant double bass.

This time, the Christmass Pillow Ball concert will be presented three times – at 11 a.m., 14 p.m. and 5 p.m. at Hall 2 of the Architects’ Union building. During the whole day Hall 1 will be taken over by our Christmas exhibition where our partners and friends will present their new products, delicious temptations and unique creativity. The same hall will be used also for our traditional Pillow Workshop where children will be able to make their own musical christmas tree as a souvenir from the event.

Pillow Carnival

Union of the Architects

Dress up in your best costumes and masks for the upcoming Pillow Carnival! This time the programme is specially prepared for those of you who truly love the animal world. Our admirers will hear Sergei Prokofiev’s fairytale work “Peter and the Wolf”, as well as the impressive Carnival of the animals by French composer Camille Saint-Saëns. They will both be interpreted by the virtuosi from the Windy quintet. A kangaroo, a swan or an elephant? Find your favorite among the animals!

In case you are having trouble finding your mask, you can make one yourself in the Pillow Workshop as a souvenir from the event. In order to do so, you are invited to join us one hour before each concert where you can also enjoy the intriguing surprises prepared by our friends and partners.
