Assosiation MAG

The Association of Young academic musicians (MAG) was founded in March 2010 in Split by Josip Dragnić and his colleague Ivan Hut. They have noticed the need of creating an organization that would unite young academically educated musicians from the wider territory of Split. Young musicians after finishing their studies scarcely find opportunities to prove themselves on the stage and to get experience in performing, which is necessary for their growth and artistic development. Until now the Association MAG has organized six MAGfestivals of chamber music and six concert seasons, called MAGseasons with a total of 70 concerts in various concert venues in Split. Along with the permanent audience, relevant institutions have also recognized the work of the Association. The sector for cultural activity of the City of Split, Split-Dalmatia County and the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia have given their support to the activity of the Association. The President of the Republic of Croatia, Ivo Josipović, welcomed the founders of the Association MAG several times and gave his support to their activities. As a result in December 2012 a charity concert „Concert with the President“ was organized by the Association MAG at the Croatian National Theatre in Split under the patronage and with the presence with the presence of the President of the Republic of Croatia.
