Thank you!

How time flies when one is having a good time! It's hard to believe that Festival Maribor 2018 is over! We've been passionate, we've been struck by lightning, we've admired the power of human heart and enjoyed the laughter of children. We've gasped at the roars of nature, and celebrated lasting friendships. But, above all: we've enjoyed eight fantastic days and nights filled with great music.

For this, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts, dear Nicolas Altstaedt, The Haydn Philharmonic, Alexander Lonquich, Slovenian Philharmonic String Chamber Orchestra, The SNG Maribor Symphony Orchestra, Gergely Dubóczky, Dávid KutasLászló SeemanMahir KalmikBoštjan Lipovšek, Adriana Magdovski, Maribor Conservatory of Music and Ballet and Peter Kus.  Thank you for being the (passionate and powerful) heart of our festival, for giving it all on our stage and for being such great friends!

Also, thank you to our audiences, from the smallest concert goers (yes, the ones with pacifiers) to the grey-haired ones, who have been faithful companions of our festival for decades. It's because of all of you that we are preparing the next one already. Therefore we won't say goodbye, but: see you next September. Welcome to Festival Maribor 2019!
