For six years in a row the Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra (DSO) has organised a humanitarian concert with pianist Naira Asatryan as part of its "Autumn Music Variety” festival. Every year, funds are raised for a specific humanitarian initiative, organization or association.
Last night, a humanitarian concert was held again in the Rector’s Palace, where, despite the rain and bad weather, due to which it was already postponed once, there was a large audience that enjoyed classical music.
Naira performed four beautiful compositions by F. Chopin on the piano.
At the end of the performance, the director of the DSO, Damir Milat, handed a check for the collected amount of 5,780 Kuna to representatives of the Association of Dystrophics, Cerebral Palsy and Other Physically Handicapped Dubrovnik-Neretva County for whose needs the concert was held.
He thanked Naira for her hard work and stressed that both the city and the world need more such people. Damir Milat reminded the audience of the concerts so far and the difficulties we face today, while Naira Asatryan sent a message of patience and the importance of culture in these strange times we are going through.
