The Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra is a professional ensemble founded in 1925, as the Dubrovnik Philharmonic, later named the Dubrovnik City Orchestra and then until 1992, the Festival Symphony Orchestra. Its members are musicians with academic education, mostly from the Zagreb Academy of Music. Many of them are excellent soloists, which is a significant contribution to the Orchestra’s musical offer. Several original composers among its members make the Orchestra particularly recognizable within the musical circuits. Its list of concerts is very long, including tours all over Europe, in the US and Indonesia. The Orchestra performs a repertoire consisting of pieces by baroque, classical and romantic composers in concert venues such as the Rector’s Palace, churches and the city squares. In 2005, Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra was awarded the «Milka Trnina» prize, which is the most prestigious musical branch award in Croatia. In 2015, Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra celebrates 90th anniversary and it received a special acknowledgement for contributing repute and promotion of Dubrovnik.
