Loud noises will be heard on March 27th in the Union of the architects because this time we have included the percussion instruments: marimba, timpani, drums, xylophone, and others. Especially for the event three percussionists – Martina Miteva and the brothers Kiril and Nikola Petrov will demonstrate to us that music can make big and small feet dance without a rest. Various works, that will make you smile and experience every movement, will be included in the programme.

As in all other Pillow Concerts of this season, there will also be a Best Costume Award for our most creative admirer. We are expecting the unusual topic to fill the hall with small ninjas or your favorite superheroes. An hour before the music event, all guests are invited to participate in the Pillow Workshop where percussion instruments will be made and decorated in the most unusual and creative ways.
