The program will be followed by a concert featuring a trio of Slovak musicians, Pospiš – Sillay – Nikitin, titled Spev tebe (Singing to You) and inspired by Walt Whitman's poetry. The eponymous album, created as a tribute to one of the greats of poetry, was recorded in The Samurai Hotel Recording Studio in New York. They teamed up with the acclaimed singer Hanka G and numerous prominent overseas guests, such as bass player Stanley Banks, pianist and organist John Peters or drummer Taru Alexander. The lyrics to Whitman's songs were translated to Slovak and edited by poet and translator Martin Solotruk.

Entrance to all events is free of charge.
