Our Goal

The main goals of Festival include strengthening of national and international cooperation among artists, pedagogues, instrument builders, all of whom allow students, by forging mutual ties, to elevate their own knowledge to a higher level and spread their positive artistic experiences and impressions of BiH across the world. Consequently, the initial Festival structure is based on four fundamental elements: concerts, international guitar-playing contest in five categories, master classes.
