Written by  Jun 25, 2020

After a long break and lots of concerts at various open locations, the Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra is finally returning to the Rector's Palace where it will perform on Friday, June 26th, at 9 pm. The String Chamber Ensemble of the Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra under the direction of violinist Dana Kahriman will perform, with a solo performance by cellist Vid Veljak.

On the program are Holst's St. Paul's Suite, op. 29; Haydn Concerto for Cello and Orchestra no. 2 in D major and Serenade for Strings in C major, Op. 48 by P. I. Tchaikovsky.

Vid Veljak started learning the cello from the age of three, and noticing his talent at a very early age, professor Valter Despalj invited him to his class at the Music Academy in Zagreb, where he successfully passed the entrance exam as a fourteen-year-old. He is the winner of numerous competitions, including the international competitions Antonio Janigro in Porec and Daleki akordi in Split, and in 2015 he was a finalist in the prestigious cello competition "Guilhermina Suggia" in Portugal. Veljak has performed as a soloist with the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra, the Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra, the Zagreb Philharmonic, the Zagreb Soloists, the Rijeka Chamber Orchestra, the HRT Symphony Orchestra and the Cantus Ensemble. A few months ago he released a new album "Resonance(s)".

Concert tickets are 100 and 150 kuna.

The auditorium will be set up in accordance with the recommendations, but the audience is asked to keep distance in accordance with epidemiological measures, also before entering the Rector's Palace, as well as when leaving the concert.
