11th International guitar competition

For the 11 year in a row, Art School has organized the international Poreč Fest Guitar Competition. It is very proud of the quality of the competition as confirmed by numerous returning participants from various schools across Croatia and abroad. The school, which tradition goes back to 1974, promotes music culture, development of artistic work by young gifted musicians, international cultural cooperation and the exchange of experiences.

This year the solo guitar competition is organized in 6 categories and the chamber ensemble competition in 3 categories.

The Competition will be held in Concert Hall of Art School Poreč and the Theatre of the Open University Poreč.

The competition is accompanied by the opening concert, the Gala Concert by the Laureates, and the guitar exhibition.

Apart from enjoying the music and wonderful moments provided by gifted children, the youth and professional musicians, it is a great award to see their smiles, happiness and radiant faces after winning the prizes and performing at the gala concert. Year after year this competition has been growing, expanding, improving in its quality, turning into a true festival which revives the entire town and the region during preseason, enriches the cultural life and becomes recognizable for its hospitality, friendliness and approachable competition organizers.

We believe in the success of this year’s competition as a new opportunity for the exchange of experiences, cooperation, advancement and promotion.

We would like to thank all schools and academies who have participated during previous years in our competition and invite you all to the 11th Poreč Fest 2020!
