2Cellos, Croatia's most famous cello duo, will treat Zagreb to a free concert next month, in celebration of their fifth birthday.
The concert will take place at Tomislav square on 2 July 2016. It's part of the open-air Zagreb Classic Festival, whose line-up includes a number of the country's best symphony and opera orchestras, led by the Zagreb Philharmonic Orchestra.
2Cellos is made up of Luka Šulić and Stjepan Hauser, who mainly play classical rearrangements of pop songs. They said: “The phenomenal production we had at the Verona concert will be repeated in Zagreb in its entirety. We have delivered our concerts in the U.S and we are ending the world tour at home, where else? We can only hope that on this day the Croatian soccer national team will not be playing quarter-finals on the same day!”
The concert is part of Zagreb Cultural Summer (ZgKUL) which offers all manner of culture and arts programmes with the aim of bringing life to the city during the touristy summer months.
