Torkar and Monika Bohinec and ox Carniola (mixed choir): The Folk Tale (Slovenia)

Location: Promenade
Free entrance.

The wind orchestra Jesenice- Kranjska Gora was established in 1874 and is with 60 members currently one of the biggest wind orchestras in Slovenia. This group of young, enthusiastic and hard-working musicians is led by their conductor Dejan Rihtarič who is at the same time one of the creators of »Ljudska z’GODBA« (The Folk Tale) project which they will present at the Okarina festival.

Slovenia's rich cultural heritage was used as the main source of ideas for this project. Aleksander Čonč and Anže Rozman, two young, yet extremely talented Slovenian composers shaped the pieces into beautiful  medleys combining contemporary and folk music. The orchestra will be joined by opera singers, mezzosopranist Monika Bohinec (soloist of the Vienna State Opera) and tenorist Klemen Torkar as well as a mixed choir Vox Carniola from Jesenice
