MAG festival - blend of musical and visual experience

Chamber Music Festival, organizers say, offer a wonderful blend of musical and visual experience, making it attractive for a wide circle of art and culture lovers, opened by Josip Dragnić and Ivan Hut. 

From 27th of August to 5th of September, organizers say, more than 20 artists in 15 different chamber ensembles will perform. 
After an extremely successful and well visited beginning of MAGfestival, director of the Museum of Split Elvira Šarić said she was pleased not only because the museum recognized the beauty and importance of the project, but also because of the set concept to offer something more than visual activity. They took care about organizing the festival at the end of the season, so that Split citizens , but also city guests, who have shown enormous interest, get new content. 
- “ Museums should actively participate in the social scene of the city, and we strive to make our exibition area living outside working hours”, said Šarić. 
On Wednesday, 31st of August there is "An Evening of Beethoven and Brahms” performed by String Quintet, and on Thursday the Brass Quintet " Busina brass " will perform a wide program of original works for brass, from arrangements of well-known orchestral pieces to jazz, 20th century music and film music. 
On Saturday, Saxophone Quartet will perform "New Sax", and after Sunday break , MAGfestival will be closed by "Mandoline Quartet Da Capo” performance.
