JUNIOR PERCUSSION CAMP
Josip Konfic /HR/

About the camp
This Junion Percussion Camp is intended for percussionists from the age of six onwards. The programme for the 6 days offers six workshops (bodypercussion, snare drum, marimba, drum set, timpani and improvisation), 10 hours of chamber music, 2 hours individually with a mentor and 2 student concerts in the magical medieval Istrian town of Grožnjan.
The main goal of the camp is to get acquainted with the colorful world of percussion through the basics of playing classical percussion (used in a symphony orchestra), but also non-classical, such as playing on your body - bodypercussion.  Chamber music classes aim to connect students, develop their creativity and musical skills.
In addition to music, participants will have the opportunity to participate in a dance workshop and get acquainted with that art form as well. Evenings are reserved for open-air screenings of music-themed movies.

In case you are interested in percussion instruments and you haven't yet had the opportunity to get to know them better, Junior Percussion Camp is the place to be.

Being childish mostly means to be silly, while being childlike is often considered wise. Besides rationality, sophistication, consistency, thoughtfulness, thoughtthroughness could we include playfulness, naivete, joy, erraticness, intractability, wondering, obstinacy, tryouts and experiment in your agenda? How can we rely more on intuition rather than intellect? Join architects and scholars led by Tezuka architects from Tokyo and Jim Njoo from Paris to explore and implement these ideas in the life of the picturesque small hill town of Grožnjan!

 

Takaharu+Yui Tezuka / Tezuka achitects Tokyo based Takaharu and Yui Tezuka in 1994 established one of the most innovative practices working today. They have extensive experience designing spaces for children, such as Fuji Kin-dergarten, which was named the best school in the world by OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) and UNESCO. Recently they were awarded for the best reli-gious building in 2022 by Archdaily for their project of Niijima Gakuen Junior College Hall & Chapel. “We set out on a pursuit not just in designing architecture, but in changing the world for the better through the means of architecture; a value we hold true to this day. Architecture is not merely an object, but holds the power to change people's lives and socie-ties.” While their activity is based on architectural design, they hold lectures all over the world, re-ceiving offers from OECD. Their theory on children`s environment is published as the "Yellow-book" from Harvard University.

Piano Masterclass and interpretation with introduction in Croatian contemporary music

Max. Number of Participants: 30
Level: Elementary, Secondary School and Academy
Working languages: Croatian, English and Italian

This course focuses on the interpretation of repertoire from different epochs and appreciation of Croatian and Contemporary music literature with particular emphasis on surveying a diverse scope of genres. It focuses on terminology, techniques, and critical interpretation.


krpan katarinaCroatian pianist Katarina Krpan graduated from the Zagreb Academy of Music, where she studied with Vladimir Krpan, later continuing her studies and obtaining a master’s degree at the Conservatoire de Musique in Lausanne, where her teacher was Jean-François Antonioli. Having given a number of noteworthy recitals, concerts with symphony and chamber orchestras, and chamber music performances, Katarina Krpan took her place among Croatia’s leading concert artists at an early age. The invitations she has received to leading festivals and the numerous concerts she has given in the great music centers of Europe, North and South America, Australia and Africa bear witness to the extent of her international renown. Besides appearances with the Zagreb Soloists, The Zagreb Philharmonic and the Croatian Radio-Television Symphony Orchestra, she has performed with numerous foreign orchestras (the Macedonian Philharmonic, the Timisoara Philharmonic, the Ural Philharmonic, the Rio de Janeiro Philharmonic Orchestra, the Cairo Symphony Orchestra, the San Remo Symphony Orchestra, the Sofia Symphony orchestra, the City of Freemantle Symphony Orchestra, the Chernigov Philharmonic etc.). She has shared the concert stage with the most distinguished Croatian conductors (Igor Gjadrov, Pavle Dešpalj, Nikša Bareza, Vladimir Kranjčević and Mladen Tarbuk), and also collaborated with prominent foreign conductors in Croatia and abroad (Anton Nanut, Lorenz Arnič, Florentino Dias, Sevdar Ganiev, Modest Čikirdan, Mikola Tukač, Jean-François Antonioli, Julian Kovačev, Klaus Arp, Dmitrij Liss and Kazushi Ŏno). Katarina’s considerable verve as a soloist, as well as her strong predilection for the most varied kinds of chamber music playing, come particulary to the fore when she and her father, Vladimir Krpan, perform works written for piano four hands or two pianos, or concertos written for two pianos and orchestra. The music-making of the piano duo of Vladimir and Katarina Krpan is familiar to music lovers in a number of European centers of culture, and the Best Music label has released a CD of theirs featuring works by Béla Bartók, Samuel Barber and Johannes Brahms. Katarina Krpan’s enviable recorded archive included numerous studio recordings made for the leading Croatian, Swiss and Italian radio and television companies, as well as several compact discs released by Croatian as well as foreign record labels. Following her father’s illustrious example, Katarina Krpan likewise devotes considerable attention to the systematic promotion of new Croatian music. Thus she has ably and convincingly premiered and recorded a truly impressive number of recent piano compositions, which both gifted novices and season’s Croatian composers – elated by such genuine artistic collaboration – have dedicated to her with equal frequency. She is Full professor in the piano department of the Zagreb Academy of Music, and a guest professor at Accademia della Steinway Society in Verona.

ADA INTERNATIONAL YOUTH SAXOPHONE ORCHESTRA

 

In order to make the cultural space formed by the countries of Austria, Hungary, Croatia, and Slovenia even more musically connected , the International Youth Saxophone Orchestra ADA, was formed in 2021.
Having diverse ethnic identity, the countries get connected by a common cultural heritage, which creates a good basis for a new pedagogical and artistic project that connects young saxophonists of these countries.
A group of established saxophonists and educators, led by Lev Pupis, brought together ideas and focused their energy on common goals:
- To enable young people to create music together and to educate them in chamber and orchestral music making.
- To enable socializing between peers, to break down boundaries both on the map and in their heads.
- Connect music educators in the region and create a greater common space for action.
The International Youth Saxophone Orchestra ADA, named after the main geographical features (the Alps, the Danube and the Adriatic), is a multi-year pedagogical-artistic project.
The ADA had their initial session at Alpsax Summer 2021 International Music Festival, in Kranjska Gora- Slovenia. The orchestra held its premiere concert on July 10th in Kranjska Gora. Together with the SOS junior orchestra, they took part in the big gala concert Sax in the City on July 11th 2021 in the hall of the Slovenian Philharmonic in Ljubljana.
This year it is Croatia's turn to host the ADA orchestra for rehearsals and concerts, which will take place in the beautiful town of Grožnjan-World Meeting Center of Jeunesses Musicales International from, 24th-28th August and in Novigrad.
The orchestra will be composed of 35 young musicians between the ages 13 and 18. With the help of mentors and a guest conductor, they will prepare an attractive and artistically demanding concert program and present it to audiences in all participating countries in a few years time.

The mentors of the ADA Orchestra are:
Diego Garcia-Pliego – Austria
Domen Koren – Slovenia
Viktor Nagy– Hungary
Tomislav Žužak – Croatia

The guest conductor: Andreas van Zoelen, (Netherlands) saxophone teacher at the University of Music in Tilburg. A member of the famous Rascher Saxophone Quartet, conductor, composer and arranger.
