This concert evening in Congress Square brings together two of Slovenia’s most prominent wind orchestras. The Slovenian Railways Wind Orchestra was founded in Zidani Most in 1902 by employees of the railway company. The men and women of the orchestra continue to go from strength to strength and maintain the proud railway band tradition in exemplary fashion. The origins of the Police Orchestra date back to 1948, when the People’s Militia Band was founded.. In 1994 the Slovenian government made the ensemble the official orchestra of the Republic of Slovenia for state and diplomatic functions. In 2001 its name was officially changed to the Police Orchestra. In addition to its role at state and diplomatic functions, the Police Orchestra gives concerts and performs for the police and the Ministry of the Interior. Through its work it helps foster a good relationship between the police and citizens. The orchestra has performed more than 12,000 concerts to date, with 307 successful appearances at home and abroad in 2016 alone.
