Drop Down Community
Founded and formed as a new independent string orchestra, Drop Down Community is made out of young and talented people who are led by the love of music. The “fatal” number 13 plays a key role in the formation of the orchestra.
All 13 members, leading musicians in Bulgarian concert life themselves, unite in this chamber orchestra, driven by the ambition to take classical music out of the status quo of “museum” art and to confront it with the latest musical trends and sound. Educated in the world’s most renowned and prestigious music academies and universities, the members of Drop Down Community perform at a high professional level. The artistic curiosity and the broadest possible spectrum of repertoire guided the ambitious ensemble to shape its work, seeking innovative views on the sound of the string orchestra, both on works by classical composers as well as original music.
The first appearances of the band were extremely successful. The concert given in The “Ledenika” Cave, part of the “Music in the Cave” Festival, received a strong positive response from the professional music circles. On January 29, 2020, in Sofia, Drop Down Community had a debut at one of the biggest clubs in the city – “Exe Club”. Consisted entirely with original music, the performance had a big success and received applause from the audience.
The title of the concert is inspired by W. A. Mozart’s work “Serenata notturna” which will be performed alongside works by composers Edvard Grieg, Marin Goleminov and Rumen Boyadzhiev Jr. This repertoire paints a wonderful musical picture, naturally complemented by the beautiful lakeside sunset.
