Summer Guitar School
During the international Gitarastra Summer Guitar School, many participants, ranging from elementary music school students to music academy students from Croatia and abroad, perfect their guitar and musical knowledge and skills, gather concert experiences, socialise and get to know the beauty of ancient Pharos and Hvar island.
Student concerts are held every evening and, upon completion of the seminar, the guitarists hold a final concert where they demonstrate what they learned, much to the joy of the Stari Grad audience and tourists.
The school is run by the distinguished Croatian guitar educator Ante Čagalj, professor at the Elly Bašić School of music in Zagreb.
This year, Gitarastra will be held in Stari Grad, from July 12 to July 24, when it will celebrate its big 30th anniversary.
