You can’t beat an evening at the philharmonic. This is a big time of year for Zagreb’s melodious magicians, and the upcoming Philharmonic Ball (30.12.) is one of the biggest dates on a packed calendar. The ball is a trip back to the days of Viennese-influenced grandeur, with iconic compositions soundtracking an evening of grace and elegance. The concert promises to be as magical as ever, and the pre-concert dancing and socializing in the lobby is every bit as important. What’s more, the concert schedule for the early 2023 season has been announced, and the highlights are plenty. Standout concerts include The Music of the Americas (March 24), the Zagreb Music Biennale on April 21 and A Night at the Orient (May 5). There is never a bad time to embrace the magic of music, of course.
