Classical Music



The Amadeo Festival combines a rich pedagogical and concert activity in its activity; from the final concerts of the participants of the music courses to the concerts of the professional Amadeo Orchestra. The summer school for musicians takes place in Škofja Loka in the archaic atmosphere of Puštalski Castle, and in Sorica in the beautiful embrace of mountains and beautiful nature. As part of the integration of the cultural environment of Loka and Sorica, a series of thematic art workshops will be held this year, led by academically educated artists, who will crown their work at the end with art exhibitions in both Škofja Loka and Sorica. In addition to high-quality individual and group lessons, each gathering is an invaluable experience and a travel guide for young musicians that will accompany them in their later lives.
