Festival Maribor 2023 is over. What a conclusion it was. A celebration of modern Slovenian music and poetry, composers and poets, with the renowned Ensemble Modern, was not just an ending but the climax of this year's festival.
As the final notes echo in our hearts, we want to take a moment to express our deepest gratitude. It's been an extraordinary journey of music, emotions, and shared experiences.
First and foremost, we extend our heartfelt thanks to the brilliant artists who graced our stage. Your virtuosity and passion breathed life into every composition, leaving us spellbound. Your dedication to the craft has elevated this festival to new heights.
Equally, we want to thank our discerning audiences. Your unwavering support and enthusiasm are the lifeblood of this event. Thank you for your applause, energy, and love. You are the reason we strive for excellence year after year.
A big thank also to the festival's staff and everyone at Narodni dom Maribor, Lutkovno gledališče Maribor, SNG Maribor and Društvo Hiša!, who helped us make this festival a success.
As we draw the curtain on this chapter, we invite you to mark your calendars for the following year's edition. Festival Maribor 2024 returns in September with another enchanting journey in pursuit of beauty. Until then, keep making and enjoying good music! It's the compass guiding us unerringly towards it.
