A village worldly known for its centuries-old tradition of quarrying and processing stone, has been dedicated to the music all summer long, for more than 20 years!
The 26th International Summer Music School is being held in Pučišća, on the island of Brač. During the two summer months, they will hold about forty ten-day workshops on classical, jazz and popular music.
So far, professors from Croatia and abroad have held about thirty workshops for young, talented and ambitious participants from all over Croatia as well as those from Slovenia, Serbia, Austria, Russia, Ukraine, Macedonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Poland, Switzerland, Latvia, France, Sweden and Canada.
Participants, in addition to daily individual work with professors on instruments of piano, guitar, violin, cello, flute, trumpet, trombone, saxophone, horn, accordion and double bass, held class concerts and final concerts that were accompanied by a large audience in epidemiological conditions.
Until the end of the summer, in addition to the mentioned classical music workshops, Jazz workshops will be held in Bol, co-organized by the Bol Cultural Center. They are a special treat for musicians eager to play and sing with some of our best jazz musicians in the form of jam sessions. After the final jazz concert, another group of musicians is expected to perform, which will be the final summer project, as the crown of improving musical skills, exchanging experiences and preparing concerts for many young people.
For many, this summer school has been a ticket to prestigious universities and has helped them in their music careers. Numerous participants today are recognized and famous musicians, and it was they who took the postcards of the place, so thanks to them Pučišća, along with its prized stone and stonemasons, became known around the world as a music stage.
The program of the International Summer Music School Pučišća is in long-term cooperation with the Municipalities of Pučišća and Bol, TZ Pučišća, Center for Culture Bol, Primary Music School Brač and Buffet Crampon from Paris.
For many years, the school has been supported by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia, the Split-Dalmatia County, the Split-Dalmatia County Tourist Board, Arriva, HUZIP, ZAPRAF, and the Jazz.hr portals of the Croatian Society of Composers and Sound Guardian.
