31st International Festival of Brass Bands “Our World is Music”
“Our world is music” is a festival that has been organized by the Lovran Wind Orchestra for many years. The festival combines the pleasant with the useful, and the guests of the Lovran Wind Orchestra, who enrich the tourist program with their music during the first weekend in May, introduce the beauties of Lovran and the entire Opatija Riviera. Through three days of musical delights, orchestras from Italy, Slovenia, Hungary, Germany and Austria present their region and the musical tradition of their region on the Opatija Riviera from Mošćenička Draga, through Lovran, Opatija to Matulji. The concerts start on Friday in Lovran, to continue on Saturday with promenade performances in the surrounding towns and a joint festive concert in Opatija. The grand finale is reserved for Sunday for the processions in Opatija and Lovran, when almost 200 Festival participants create one big orchestra, marching and playing as one. Lovers of this type of music and instrumental variety can enjoy the beauty of the Opatija Riviera and music just for their ears this weekend.
