MAKRIS SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA had its first concert in Belgrade, Serbia, on January 31, 2015, and since then it has grown to one of the best orchestras in the region. The Orchestra received the “Orchestra of the Year” Award for 2015 by the music magazine “Musica Classica”. Since then, it presented concerts with varied repertoire and soloists such as Marc Coppey (France), Evelyn Berezovsky (Russia), Nataša Veljkovich (Austria) and others. Makris Symphony Orchestra pays special attention to stylistic interpretation, and depending on the repertoire the musicians play on modern or period instruments, or they use certain elements that are appropriate for the correct interpretation of the music from the time when it was created. The orchestra operates under the auspices of the American-based Makris Foundation, and therefore it bears the name of a Greek-American composer Andreas Makris (1930-2005). The Makris Foundation, based in Washington DC, works to preserve the musical legacy of Andreas Makris and supports the development of young musical talents. The orchestra is also the official orchestra of the New Belgrade Opera. This is their first tour beyond the borders of their country.
