The tradition of musical regattas in Ljubljana is linked to the first predecessor of today’s Slovenian Philharmonic Orchestra – the Academia Philharmonicorum Labacensis, which was founded in 1701 and inspired by Italian academies of this kind that appeared from the 16th century onwards. The activities of its members (amateur musicians) were generally of a closed type, in the form of performances for members only, but they also performed in public on formal occasions, such as events linked to the royal family. They presented themselves to the people of Ljubljana at the annual summer regattas on the Ljubljanica River, where they performed “the most select music”. At this year’s Ljubljana Festival, the river flowing through the old town centre of the Slovenian capital will once again become one of the summer’s attractive concert venues. Young musicians from the Ljubljana Academy of Music and Conservatory for Music and Ballet will enliven the early summer atmosphere in the city with some outstanding music, and listeners will be able to join them on their journey along the Ljubljanica River on a boat.
