Yesterday, 14.4.2014, the Military Orchestra of the Macedonian Army performed a solo concert in the big hall of the Macedonian Opera and Ballet (MOB), which officially closed the event “Days of Macedonian Music”.
At this renowned music festival, the Military Orchestra for the first time performed under the baton of Saso Tatarchevski. Especially for this occasion saxophonist Steve Tammy from the U.S. Marines Orchestra made a guest appearance, performing together with the orchestra.
Last night, in front of the full MOB hall, the audience had an opportunity to see the premiere of the musical works covered for the Military Orchestra by the famous Macedonian music artists: Ilija Ilievski, Kokan Dimushevski, Alexander Dzambazov, Ilija Pejovski, Blagoj Canev, Gligor Smokvarski, Tome Manchev and John Williams.On this occasion, the ARM Military Orchestra once again showed its tremendous skills, and the applause on the MOB stage proved that the Military Orchestra is a musical band with high professional reputation, and that after this performance it established itself as a significant factor in the development of the Macedonian music culture.
The performance of the Military Orchestra at the event “Days of Macedonian Music” is a continuation of the civil-military cooperation project, which aims to make ARM closer to the citizens; to fulfil this aim, in the course of 2014 many performances are scheduled to be held in several cities in Macedonia.
