The Makris Symphony Orchestra began its operation in Belgrade, Serbia on January 31, 2015 and has since become one of the best orchestras in the region. In 2015 he received the “orchestra of the year” award from the music magazine “Musica Classica”. Since then he has been present on the music scene, interpreting various repertoires and with numerous soloists such as Marc Coppey (France), Evelyn Berezovsky (Russia), Nataša Veljkovich (Austria) and others. The Makris Symphony Orchestra pays particular attention to stylistic interpretation and, depending on the repertoire, the musicians play on modern or vintage instruments, making use of certain elements appropriate for the correct interpretation of the music, focusing on the moment in which it was created. The orchestra operates under the auspices of the US-based Makris Foundation, spreading the name of the Greek-American composer Andreas Makris (1930-2005) around the world. The Makris Foundation, based in Washington DC, works to preserve Andreas Makris’ musical legacy and supports the development of young musical talent. The orchestra is also the official orchestra of the New Belgrade Opera. This is their first tour beyond the borders of their country.
