The Ljubljana Fanfare Trumpeters will perform on the Town Hall balcony on Saturday mornings throughout the summer, reviving the tradition of ceremonial fanfares typical of Ljubljana.
Their performances will have the same function as cannon firing, bell ringing or clock tower chiming in other cities.
Ljubljana's original 16th century fanfare trumpeters were musicians who came to Ljubljana from Graz on the invitation of the then mayor of Ljubljana. Playing a fanfare, they announced to the people of Ljubljana the town gate opening and closing times. They also performed on other occasions, such as official functions, imperial visits, and visits from other notables.
