An Orchestra consisting of the National Theatre Opera musicians, music school teachers and a few amateur musicians held its first concert under the name Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra on 13 June 1923.
Afterwards, two world wars took place with constant interruptions of their work.
Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra gave their first post-war concert in November 1944, immediately after Belgrade liberation.
An intense period of touring and guest appearances ensued again, up until the nineties and the war on the territory of Yugoslavia, which took the orchestra back to the margins of the European music scene.
Immediately after 2000, a younger generation of musicians began working for the orchestra and the work space in the Philharmonic Orchestra building and its chamber stage underwent modernisation.
The works lasted from 2001 to 2003 with a modest budget and a lot of professional enthusiasm. The director of the Philharmonic Orchestra Ivan Tasovac gathered a fantastic team of renowned architects and professionals to work on this assignment.
Until the final equipment installation, Svetlost Teatar developed several studies of possible interventions for the stage and ambient lighting solution, orchestra lighting quality and effective lighting of the soloists.
Svetlost Teatar made the original space structure, consisting of 6 mobile inverted pyramid contours, as a unique design and technical solution. In terms of functionality, those are mobile electromechanical systems which carry professional lighting equipment for an even orchestra lighting and at the same time, the space structure aluminium tubes are filled with installations and miniature sources which resemble an avant-garde chandelier.
That sparkly spatial pyramid structure has since become a recognisable symbol of the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra, it has become its trademark.
