TriO
Three musicians - each with their own instrument, soul and love of music-making and musical creativity - came together to create and share with others the beauty of this art. Flute, horn and piano is an unusual ensemble that can express and evoke different moods and emotions – from a subtle, delicate melody to volcanic power, pure children's joy and, on the other side, profound sadness.
Nikolina Kovač Juvan (flute), Robert Petrič (horn) and Lovorka Nemeš Dular (piano) are academically educated musicians who have gathered at Grosuplje Music School, where they are currently teaching. The trio, simply named as TriO, performs works of classical music with elements of jazz and other styles. They attract the attention of the audience with a dedicated and vivid performance.

Flute Ensemble FlavtIstra

Upon Alenka Zupan’s initiative, excellent flutists Erika Dujc, Tadeja Kozlovič, Eva Mittendorfer, Nina Rupnik, Jelena Pešić, Lea Sirk and Alenka Zupan joined their musical force in order to reproduce high quality music and to transfer to the audience depths of heart spoken music.
AF FlavtIstra is performing since January 2016. With two independent concerts: Ode to women and FlavtIstra summer embrace, they conjured up unforgettable musical experience to the large and enthusiastic audience. In this short period they recorded and presented themselves at the TV Koper-Capodistria and TV Slovenia (Ljubljana studio). On 1st April 2016 they enriched Festival Svirél in Šmartno.
