Social Programme

The Social Programme of EFMC-ISMC 2018 will include the following events:

  • Welcome Reception on Sunday, September 2
    Venue: Gospodarsko razstavišce - Exhibition and Convention Centre
    Participation in the welcome reception is free of charge, but subject to prior registration (during your on-line registration).

  • Concert on Tuesday, September 4
    Venue: Cankarjev dom - Linhart Hall
    Participation in the Concert is free of charge, but subject to prior registration (during your on-line registration).

    The vocal group Perpetuum Jazzile is comprised of both female and male singers, who perform songs without any instrumental accompaniment and therefore use various techniques, including vocal percussion, to cover all the elements in the music. Conducted by the renowned Swedish singer, arranger, and conductor, Peder Karlsson, the group mostly performs well-known pop songs, Slovene folk music, and gospel songs, which are re-arranged into different musical genres, such as jazz, bossa nova, funk and swing.
  • Excursions on Wednesday, September 5
    Optional excursions will take place during the afternoon of September 5 (as from 15:30). Excursions are subject to prior registration and payment (during your on-line registration). Further information on the proposed excursions is available below. All excursions will take place at the same time, so only 1 excursion per person can be booked.

  • Symposium Banquet on Wednesday, September 5
    Venue: Cankarjev dom - Grand Reception Hall
    One of the finest venues of Cankarjev dom and, owing to its soaring ceilings, one of the most spacious and brightest halls in Slovenia, the Grand Reception Hall was devised by the architect Edo Ravnikar. Clad in white marble and adorned by splendid metal chandeliers, the photogenic architectural masterpiece is the perfect place for the Symposium Banquet.

    The participation to the Banquet is optional, and requires prior registration as well as a contribution of 60,00€ per participant. Please register for the banquet during your on-line registration.
