This concert evening in Križanke brings together two of Slovenia’s most prominent wind orchestras.

The Slovenian Railways Wind Orchestra, as we know it today, is the only one of Slovenia’s once numerous railway bands and orchestras still performing. Founded by railwaymen in Zidani Most in 1902, it currently has 80 active members, whose energy and commitment have brought a string of successes. The current conductor, the eleventh to wield the baton since the orchestra was founded, is Franci Lipovšek, who took over in 1999. Under his leadership, the orchestra began to develop significantly and started taking part in competitions, resulting in an increase in the quality and complexity of the music it plays.

The Trbovlje Workers’ Band, on the other hand, has been among the most popular amateur wind orchestras for decades, having confirmed its high quality and long musical tradition with first places at wind competitions in Slovenia and notable successes at WMC Kerkrade (Netherlands), the world’s biggest international competition of wind music, in 1974, 1978, 1981 and 1993. With more than 60 players and performances of some of the most demanding pieces from the concert repertoire, the Trbovlje Workers’ Band could almost be defined as a symphonic wind ensemble, with a full line-up of woodwind, brass and percussion. Since 2007 it has been led by Jože Kotar.
