Concert of the Chamber Music of Vassil Kazandjiev 
Saturday, October 19, 2019 at 7:30 pm
Lloyd Ultan Recital Hall (University of Minnesota)
Free and open to the public

Join us to celebrate the 85th Anniversary of Bulgarian composer Vassil Kazandjiev, presented by the Balkanicus Institute and the U of M School of Music!    The showcase features chamber music inspired by traditional art, some which was previously presented in the Balkanicus concert series and two world premieres which Kazandjiev wrote specially for the occasion.

Improvisational and irregular, artsy and avant-garde, timbristic and coloristic, and at the end of it – meet performers and fellow music-lovers over a tasty favorite Bulgarian reception!

All are welcome, especially if you have never experienced this music before!

Don’t miss this opportunity to delight in the music of Kazandjiev’s master pieces!

Balkan Jamboree is a music show both for those who are familiar with the treasure of the Balkan music and for those for whom the Balkan music is terra incognita. You all will have the opportunity to find out more about it but most of all I aim to bring enjoyment to everyone who is listening.

Balkan Jamboree show is a cultural outlet to the numerous Balkan communities. A unique characteristic is the inclusion to the Roma (Gipsy) people who are worldwide politically and culturally underrepresented although they are inseparable part of the Balkan culture.

Enjoy the party!
