У препуној великој сали Коларчеве задужбине одржан је концерт Београдске филхармоније под управом славног диригента Зубина Мехте.

На концерту и донаторској вечери, која је потом уследила, прикупљала су се средства за прву америчку турнеју Београдске филхармоније која је планирана на јесен следеће године.

Ово је пети пут у новом миленијуму да Мехта, чије име носи и Фондација Београдске филхармоније, предводи београдски оркестар, а на програму су била дела Франца Шуберта "Увертира за Розамунду" и 8. симфонија и Игора Стравинског Посвећење пролећа.


Na završnoj sednici žirija za dodelu Nagrade „Stevan Sremac", koja je održana u Beogradu 19. aprila, žiri u sastavu Tijana Spasić, Snežana Božić i Vule Žurić, predsednik, doneo je jednoglasnu odluku da nagradu dobije Jelena Rosić za knjigu priča „Dan kada je Miz Lili postala ono što je oduvek bila", u izdanju beogradskog Arhipelaga.


Obrazovno-istraživačko društvo Mihajlo Pupin, uz podršku Srpske akademije nauka i umetnosti i kompanije Telekom Srbija, premijerno je predstavilo Virtuelni muzej Mihajla Pupina u Galeriji nauke i tehnike SANU u Beogradu. Pored upoznavanja sa važnim i široj javnosti nedovoljno poznatim informacijama o Mihajlu Pupinu, Virtuelni muzej donosi i potpuno nov način predstavljanja naučne i kulturne baštine. Ulaskom u digitalno doba, omogućen je i pristup muzejima putem Interneta, koji ni na koji način ne umanjuje pravi doživljaj posete muzeju.
