On this occasion, young musicians from England will symbolically announce the three-month programme of cultural events in Rijeka. Two days alter, on the 16th of June, the Phoenix Boys Choir from Arizona (USA) will perform an interesting concert that will include various musical styles from pop to classical music.
The 6th Summer on Trsat festival will officially start with the concert by Oliver Dragojević, Croatia's famous pop singer whose songs guarantee good fun and beautiful atmosphere. On the 27th of June, there will be a concert of the French band La Fanfare en Petard organised in cooperation with the French Alliance Rijeka.
