Brass Pillow Concert in Russe


Sunday, March 22th, 2015
11:00 and 17:00
March Music Days Festival,
Regional Museum of History, 3, Alexander Battenberg Square, Russe,



For the first time in its five-years-long history the Pillow Concert will visit one of the most beautiful cities in Bulgaria – Russe. The event is organized by the incredibly prestigious March Music Days festival and will be part of its newly-created musical programme for children. It wasn’t difficult to choose the musicians who would play for the Russe audience – the widely adored brass quintet, of course.

The programme will include popular opera excerpts, fiery Spanish rhythms and inspiring jazz compositions. All of our guests are invited to join us with maracas, castanets, small drums, tambourines and other percussion instruments available at home. If you can’t find any, do come along early to make one with the Onche Bonche creative team during the Pillow Workshop one hour before each concert. Immediately after the concert starts the Pillow Musical Lesson where we’ll talk about the instruments and will have prizes for the best participants.

Brass Pillow Concert in Ruse is carried out with the association of Ruse MunicipalityRuse Free Spirit City Municipal FoundationRousse Regional Museum of History, Foundation America for Bulgaria and March Music Days International Festival.
