Under the sky: Sofia quartet.

This summer, classical music leaves its traditional concert halls and goes out into the open air, at least for the month of June. Each weekend, Sofia Quartet, the most famous string quartet in Bulgaria, brings classical music closer to the audience by performing live and free of charge in front of the Ivan Vazov National Theatre in the Sofia City Garden. This weekend, the focus is on American composers, with the Sofia Quartet set to play the works of Samuel Barber, George Gershwin, Duke Ellington and Cole Porter. On Sunday, as a special treat, there will be a guest performance by Vassil Petrov, whose voice has earned him the moniker of "Bulgaria's Frank Sinatra".
