It’s Thursday and time for our report about the cultural and entertainment events coming up in the next few days.
Event: Third open-air concert by the Belgrade Philharmonic
Time: Sunday, June 23rd
This time around, the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra will perform Disney’s masterpiece “Fantasia”, conducted by Gabriel Feltz. Released in 1940, “Fantasia” represented Disney’s boldest experiment to date, bringing to life Walt Disney’s vision of blending animated imagery with classical music. What had begun as a vehicle to enhance Mickey Mouse’s career blossomed into a full-blown feature that remains unique in the history of animation. The Belgrade Philharmonic managed to gather 25,000 people for their first open-air concert in 2017, while the next year, 40,000 people came to enjoy the Philharmonic’s rendition of HD Odyssey coupled with the footage from the universe.
