Adriatic DMC hosted American Music Abroad performers during their stay in Croatia. The audience, composed of locals and other travelers, was delighted by AMA's performance.
This July we had the opportunity to cooperate with American Music Abroad organization and host their events in Croatian Istria (also known as “Terra Magica”) with our tailor made programs.
Our partners have been organizing musical tours for 40 years and providing amazing programs for USA high school students. Programs are based on travelling the Europe and visiting major European attractions as Paris, Strasbourg, Vienna, Munchen, Venice and many others in little over two weeks’ time. During their travels they present their musical knowledge by having free concerts as a sign of gratitude to their hosting cities. They are music enthusiasts who meet in USA days before departing for Europe and spend their days practicing and rehearsing the show they will use during their tour. Few years ago, they expanded the program to Slovenia and Croatia.
Our guests this year were Liberty tour, Silver tour and Freedom tour. They followed similar three-day program for each tour, starting with dinner based on homemade Istrian delicacies with folkloric performance in a small Istrian town, St. Peter in the Woods. Just like its name hints, the tiny town is settled amidst beautiful forests, and is famous for the beautiful baroque church of St. Peter and Paul and the Pauline monastery.
Their temporary home was Porec, small roman town where they spent wonderful time at leisure in Valamar Diamant Hotel exploring pools and other hotel facilities which are located right next to the beautiful pristine Adriatic Sea beaches. On day two, in afternoon, groups visited town of Rovinj (also known as „Little Venice“) where Liberty and Silver tour held great concerts in Multimedia Center and Freedom tour presented their music in Rovinj Main square. With this dreamy scenery and inspired performances, all three concert nights in this gem of northern Adriatic were pure magic.
On day three our guests made a visit to Pula, the biggest town in Istria. They did a walking tour of a Roman amphitheater which is the best preserved roman structure in this part of the world. In the evening hours they played another show in town nicest hall, Dom Hrvatskih Branitelja. The audience was a mixture between locals and other travelers and the hall got full very quickly. Citizens of Pula and guests from all over the world thanked American Music Abroad and Liberty, Silver and Freedom tour by giving them big and long applauses, almost like inviting them to return with more concerts in the future because music is universal language that all of us can understand equally!
