The musical programme of the 74th Dubrovnik Summer Festival was especially enriched by young regional composers and musicians who presented newly composed works at two concerts held on 19 and 20 July in the Rector’s Palace atrium. The new classical music pieces were inspired by local heritage and European values and written during the #synergy: Sharpening the capacities of the classical music industry in the Western Balkans project.
