Organizers of the sixth annual Sarajevo Chamber Music Festival have invited music lovers to open their homes for concerts.

The aim is to bring classical music to people who cannot visit concert halls or would rather enjoy it in an intimate setting among friends.

"If you own a piano, you can host a concert by a piano trio or quintet. If you have a spacious backyard you can host a concert by an accordion orchestra and if you live in a tiny flat you can host a soloist concert," the organizers announced on their website.

Sarajevans who would like to participate will need to hurry — the nine-day festival opens Friday.

The festival was launched in 2011 by the Sarajevo Academy of Music and the U.S.-based Manhattan String Quartet.
