You are cordially invited to the very first End of the World Survivors Meeting: a special musical event dedicated to the fortunate ones … and the poor devils who survived (let’s face it, the end of the world wasn’t half as bad as the current economy).Silence once again joins forces with conductor Tomislav Fačini, pianist Igor Vićentić, and the RTV Slovenia Symphony Orchestra. The concert will be held in Cankarjev Dom‘s Gallus Hall in Ljubljana (SLO) on Monday, January 27, 2014. We’d like to attribute the rather large venue to Silence’s growing popularity. The truth, however, is that the end of the world has had a fairly high survival rate.This will be the second live performance of the expanded, orchestrated version of Silence’s latest album, Musical Accompaniment for the End of the World. The first performance, which took place a year ago at Cankarjev Dom, was voted “Pop/Rock Concert of the Year” by Slovenia’s Delo newspaper. The upcoming concert will also feature a broad selection of older works.
