Sea and Guitars

Logo MaistraThe Sea and Guitars Music Festival is one of the summer trademarks of Vrsar. Guitar lovers know that- under the auspices of this, already traditional event, there is an exquisite concert every Thursday. Year by year, the programme has been selected by Saša Dejanović, the artistic director of the Festival and the renowned guitar virtuoso with an impressive number of performances both in Croatia and abroad.

Since the Festival was established in 2003, many distinguished masters of the guitar from all parts of the world, from Berlin to New York and Tokyo, have performed in Vrsar.

The antique ambience of the Romanesque church of St. Mary of the Sea, where the concerts take place, gives an additional lure to the Festival and in this way brings to the audience  a unique set of artistic experience. Dedicated primarily to classical guitar, the Sea and Guitars Festival explores the possibilities of  combining the guitar with other instruments, as well as musical genres such as ethno jazz, rock, and others.
