Event Details

klapa_subrenum_200Klapa Subrenum from Dubrovnik will perform a rare concert of Klapa in San Francisco. Klapa is the beautiful and complex form of traditional group singing that is immensely popular in the Dalmatian region of Croatia. Based in Dubrovnik, Klapa Subrenum performs regionally in Blato, Korcula, Tucepi, Cavtat, Kastela, and Split. They also tour Croatia and Europe and have won prizes at major festivals, most recently in Russia. They accompany their singing with the whole family of mandolins in the Dubrovnik style.  Their song "Dubrovnièe slavni", music and words by Niko Buliæ, won second place in the 2nd annual Festival of Mandolins and Klapa in Opatia.

dubrovniktrio_200Dubrovnik Trio will also be performing in the concert.  Frano Matusic, Maroje Brcic and Ante Skaramuca, the guitar teachers at the Music School of Dubrovnik, formed the Dubrovnik Guitar Trio towards the end of 1992. Soon after founding the ensemble, they began giving concerts on the stages in Croatia and abroad (France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Russia, Spain, Sweden and United States of America), drawing the attention of both the audience and the reviewers.    Since such a guitar trio is not a conventional music 'body', original works for their repertoire are quite rare; therefore, the backbone of the programme of the trio is created by transcriptions of compositions originally written for other instruments and ensembles, and arranged by Frano Matusic. Today there are more and more renowned Croatian composers, such as Zeljko Brkanovic, Niksa Njiric and Ivo Josipovic whose works The Dubrovnik Guitar Trio has had the honour to premiere. In 2007, The Dubrovnik Guitar Trio was awarded by Croatian Society of Musical Artists for exceptional artistic reach. This diploma is named “Milka Trnina” in honor of famous Croatian artist, and can be received only once during the artistic career. Deserts and drink will be available for purchase from 7:30PM.
