Immediately after the end of the Dubrovnik Summer Festival, the jubilee tenth International Music Festival "Dubrovnik in Late Summer" will start with its program, organized by the Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra (DSO), which will be held from August 26 to September 23, 2022.
At yesterday’s press conference, the Deputy Mayor of Dubrovnik, Jelka Tepšić, thanked and congratulated the DSO for their persistent efforts to make this Festival an important factor in the cultural offer of the city.
"It is important that after the end of the Dubrovnik Summer Festival, we have quality content intended for our audience and our tourists who visit the city in September, and precisely those who come at that time are guests who want to consume more cultural content," said Tepšić.
The special feature of this year's Festival, with the title "The Winner's Circle", are the performances of artists who have won awards at international music competitions. They were introduced by the chief conductor Marc Tardue, emphasizing that in the coming days in Dubrovnik we will "hear the future of classical music", while the director of the Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra, Damir Milat, also introduced the sections of the Orchestra itself, which will also perform in its chamber ensembles.
Miroslav Drašković, director of the Dubrovnik Tourist Board, also spoke at the press conference, emphasizing culture as an important way of promoting the city's tourism.
The international music festival "Dubrovnik in Late Summer" will see 14 concerts of the Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra with four conductors and over 20 soloists, in cooperation with Laus Academy Dubrovnik.
