This morning, TARJA posted a special statment to her Bulgarian fans:

"It is a great pleasure to return to Bulgaria that I have visited few times before.

My fans in Bulgaria are very loyal, passionate people and I feel very excited about this special event because I am sure they will love it!

The idea of having a symphonic orchestra, choir and Mr. Terrana on drums was originally mine. I believe this kind of combination of instruments, particularly playing mainly classical music, is very unique. I have been making collaborations with orchestras before, but this concert will be different. I feel honoured to make it happen in Bulgaria for the first time!

Our main goal with this kind of concert is that the younger audience will experience the beauty and power of a symphonic orchestra and choir. Hopefully it will serve as an introduction to classical music for some of our fans.

You can expect us performing hits from classical music, rock covers and some of my own songs.

I can´t wait to meet all my Bulgarian fans soon!
With love, Tarja"

Legendary drummer MIKE TERRANA added:

"It’s an honor and a pleasure to once again share the stage with Tarja for the upcoming Beauty & The Beat concert; however this time in a much different and challenging musical situation.  
I guess its obvious that I will provide the BEAT & Tarja will provide the BEAUTY! ;)
I am looking forward to playing some of the standard classical songs from my solo CD entitled "SinFonica" with a full orchestra and too accompany Tarja and the orchestra when she performs some operatic selections combined with some classically influenced rock ballads from her pastSurely the 2,000 year old amphitheater located in Plovdiv, Bulgaria will proved an amazing backdrop to this musical event, so the listener should prepare themselves for a lovely evening of delightful sights and sounds!Hope to see you all there!
Mike Terrana!"
