150th Anniversary Of The Zagreb Philharmonic Orchestra- Croatia 2021.
In 150 years of its operation and participation in the development of civic society and music culture in the Republic of Croatia, the city of Zagreb and the entire world, the Zagreb Philharmonic Orchestra has kept finding its way to its audience over a century and a half of societal, cultural and political shifts.
The Surrounded by Stars gala concert, which will be held on the exact day of the 150th anniversary, will bring to mind the first performance on 25 February 1871, which was conducted by the Honourable Ivan Zajc. That concert was held at the Croatian National Theatre, which was then a venue for plays and concerts, along with the Croatian Music Institute. The present home of the Zagreb Philharmonic Orchestra is the Vatroslav Lisinski Concert Hall, which opened in the now distant 1973 with a concert performance by the Zagreb Philharmonic Orchestra.
A Stamp has been issued on 28 Jan 2021 to commemorate 150th Anniversary Of The Zagreb Philharmonic Orchestra.
