About this Event

The concert embraces a Ukrainian, Serbian, English and Russian classical and modern repertoire performed by award winning artists including opera singer Alla Kravchuk (soprano), Marina Petrov (piano) and Milos Milivojević (accordion). They will take you on a journey from Tchaikovsky and Quilter to Prokofiev's beautiful songs, towards the lesser known works of composers such as Stepovy, Vlasov, Babić, Milanković, Skorick and Semonov. It will be an exciting opportunity to hear ensembles with unique arrangements for voice, piano and accordion, as well as rarely performed vocal works and solo instrumentals from these esteemed musicians.
