10th International Music Competition and Festival for Soloists and Chamber Groups

The round-numbered 10th international music competition for soloists and chamber music groups Svirél will once again take place in the inspiring Goriška Brda region and the youthful city of Nova Gorica. The competition will start with woodwinds, brass and percussion. First, the soloists will introduce themselves from 12th to 16th March at Vila Vipolže and Dobrovo Castle, followed by chamber music groups on 17th March. The first competition section will be concluded with the concert of the “Ten of the Best” on 18th March at Vila Vipolže. We will continue a week later, from 20th to 23rd March at the same venues with soloists on bowed and plucked string instruments, followed by chamber music groups with string instruments on 24th March. The concluding concert of the “Ten of the Best” will be on Sunday, 25th Match, at Vila Vipolže, the Renaissance villa. In the final week of the competition, from 3rd to 5th April, soloists on keyboard instruments will enrich Nova Gorica, joined by PIANO, this time for the first time as a competitive instrument. The chamber music of this discipline will be on 6th April at the Co-Cathedral of Christ the Saviour in Nova Gorica and the concert of the last chosen “Ten of the Best” will be on 7th April.
We would like to celebrate our tenth anniversary with You, therefore we would like to invite you to the evening gala concert of the Zugló Philharmonics orchestra on 8th April at the Grand hotel Union concert hall in Ljubljana.
