"The International Belgrade Singers" will, led by conductor Olga Milicevic, sing traditional songs from around the world. The concert is called "Muzicko tkanje" (Musical Weaving), and the ticket is your contribution which will be given to the "Dragan Kovacevic" primary school for the protection of sight.
