Zagreb Soloists at Osor Musical Evenings

Osor Musical Evenings (OGV) is a classical music festival that has been held in Osor since 1976. Osor is a small, enchanting little town on the isthmus of Islands of Cres and Lošinj. In 2011, its importance was widely recognized and it became a national festival. Concerts in the Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary or at the Osor piazza attract principally by the quality of their content, but also by the ambience of this summer festival. The festival is set on three basic premises: the international character – affirmation of Croatian contemporary composing – affirmation of Osor as a city of culture and music.

On Friday, August 17th, Zagreb Soloists and Berislav Šipuš will perform the following programme:

Milko Kelemen: Concertante Improvisationsfor string ensemble
Berislav Šipuš: Tu… mar de mi alma, for piano and string ensemble
