The music school
Šećer smo ostavili za kraj gdje ćemo vam prestaviti našu školu!
During all year there are a few music festivals, among which are worth mentioning:
This is the time when Makarska becomes the centre of the jazz music scene in the region, but also throughout Croatia. This is one of the events worth attending. The best local and international musicians present their songs in the most beautiful places in the city, which emphasizes the unique atmosphere of this event. Every year, the list of invited special guests increases, which increases the rank of the festival itself. There are also workshops for jazz enthusiasts who want to immerse themselves in the secrets.
It is a music and stage festival that started in 2009. It is a challenging project to promote folk music and introduce it to contemporary art. Throughout the years, Metno has hosted world-class stars. The festival takes place in summer, which emphasizes its atmosphere that you must experience.
