Daniela Rogulj

August 20, 2020 – Thanks to the rich tangible and intangible cultural heritage, as well as a number of diverse cultural events, Sinj and the Cetina region have long been engraved in golden letters on the tourist map of Croatia.

Thanks to the pursuit of sustainable tourism, the coexistence of carefully designed activities that are equally enjoyed by both hosts and guests, events in the Alka city always attract attention and a growing audience. This year, however, in a somewhat reduced form due to the situation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

One of such events is the Musical Evenings at the Kamicak Fortress.

Concerts of classical, but also traditional and jazz music are organized at the authentic and unique Kamicak fortress with a beautiful stage under the open sky. Such an approach popularizes these, perhaps somewhat neglected, musical expressions, and where better than in Sinj, a city of rich musical tradition.

The Sinj Tourist Board, with the support of the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia and the City of Sinj, has been organizing successful and extremely well-attended concerts for several years. So far, the Academic Accordion Orchestra “Ivan Goran Kovačić”, Sara Renar, Jazz swing quintet “Repassage”, Wind Quintet “Kalamos”, the unique Samobor percussion ensemble “Sudar Percussion”, ethno musician Dunja Knebl with the band Kololira and ethno, Nocturnal4 and Ratko Zjača and ZZ Quartet.

About the musicians:

A newer chamber ensemble on the Croatian music scene was formed in 2019 with the collaboration of three renowned musicians: Bruno Phillip – clarinet, Mario Igrec – guitar, Ambrozije Puškarić – guitar. They came together with a long-standing desire to perform eastern-influenced music together.

Through travels in different musical modes, the trio nurtures and expands its repertoire with arrangements of authentic melodies. Klezmer music, Croatian traditional music, Romanian music, Turkish traditional music, Macedonian and Greek music, are some of the most represented styles in the performances of the trio Ex Ponto. 

Created in 2018 and operates as an independent project of former students of the Elementary Music School Jakov Gotovac in Sinj. The band consists of Mirna Alfirević piano, Martina Bilić – flute and Mislav Norac – clarinet.

Young academic musicians have won a number of awards at national and international competitions throughout Croatia and abroad. Their love for music and making music together has made them a serious band that includes in their repertoire works of various stylistic periods – from classical and romanticism to contemporary music. In addition to the repertoire of foreign composers, the trio pays special attention to performing works by Croatian composers.

The concert will take place with the implementation of the recommended measures of the Civil Protection Headquarters and the NZJZ.

Admission is free, but due to the situation with COVID -19 disease is limited to preserve the health of all visitors.
