TRH Crown Prince Alexander II and Crown Princess Katherine were in America and Canada during March, where a series of Marina Arsenijevic’s concerts were organized. The concerts in Chicago and Toronto were organized by the humanitarian organization “Lifeline” under patronage of HRH Crown Princess Katherine, and the entire proceeds of the concerts are intended for the aid to the most endangered population categories and institutions in Serbia.
The series of concerts “The Princess and the Prodigy” were attended by the most prominent public figures. Beside the proceeds from the sold tickets, that will be in aid of our country, the concerts of Marina Arsenijevic also have the aim to inform the international community about our country’s needs as well as about the Serbian cultural heritage.
The success of these events is confirmed by the fact that a new series of concerts under same patronage and in the same organization will be held by the end of the year.
