Event Description

The International Club of DC, with the cooperation of the Embassy of Slovenia, cordially request the pleasure of your company for a winter concert and an enchanting evening of Slovenian culture, art, music, and wine from Slovenia featuring welcome remarks* by the Ambassador of Slovenia, H.E. Ambassador Stanislav Vidovic.



The evening starts with a winter concert by Slovenian musicians Janina Lorenci and Lola Mlacnik followed by a wine reception to meet and socialize with diplomats and other guests attending the event. You are welcome to attend on your own or with friends to discover the natural beauty of Slovenia as well as traveling to Slovenia for the vacation of a lifetime.

Slovenian Duo IKT
You are cordially invited to experience a winter concert by the award-winning duo of saxophone and percussion. Indulge in a concert that brings a new, fresh and exciting feel to classical and contemporary chamber music. Coming from Slovenia, Janina Lorenci and Lola Mlacnik formed the duo while studying at the Conservatory of Amsterdam. Their repertoire is as rare and refreshing as the combination itself. Striving to expand the collection of pieces for the combination they arrange existing repertoire as well as commission new works from today's well known composers. They play pieces that represent their musical message - high quality classical contemporary music that is accessible to larger audiences, groovy, animated and as diverse as the collection of instruments they perform on.

Kindly note that the event is presented as a concert followed by wine reception and not a dinner event so please plan to have dinner before or after the event. The event is presented for you to walk around the embassy, meet ICDC members, as well as embassy staff during the wine reception, as you discover and learn about Slovenia. Please note that space at the Embassy of Slovenia is limited and we expect this event to sell out in advance. Reserve your tickets soon before we are sold out!
