After the end of the eighteenth Earth Day in row at ZOV, everyone fondly remembers the event that brought many smiles to children's faces.
The students of the Adamovec regional school were especially pleased, who are this year's winners of the competition for the best artistic and literary work on the topic of ecology, which is announced every year by ZOr on the occasion of the celebration of Earth Day. Imaginative works were exhibited at the Central Wastewater Treatment Plant, and we awarded the "Best in Show" award to the talented little ecologists of the seventh grade with a concert and a lecture and an appropriate reception in the Vatroslav Lisinski Concert Hall.
It is about the concert 'Night of the Orient' and the award was presented by Mrs. Martina Jakić in front of the Zagreb Philharmonic at the Earth Day event. Last Friday, children from Adamovac, had the opportunity to enjoy a cultural afternoon with lots of musical surprises. Producer Andrea Višak gave an introductory presentation to the children, while they then had the opportunity to attend the "NIGHTS OF THE ORIENT" concert conducted by conductor Tonči Bilić.
The program was of a more than enviable level, and the children were also able to experience live everything they learned in music lessons. Let's just say that some of the works of Night of the Orient were compositions: Camille Saint-Saens: "Bacchanalle" Op. 47, from the opera Samson and Delilah, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky: "Arab Dance" from the Nutcracker ballet, Giuseppe Verdi: "Ballet" scene from the opera Aida, Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakova: "Prince and Princess" - 3rd movement from the symphonic suite Scheherazade, op.35, Richard Strauss: "Salome's Dance" (Dance of the Seven Veils), from the opera Salome.
