Arilje’s Summer Music Manifestation
14. – 29. July
Arilje’s Summer Music Manifestation or simply ARLEMM is a cultural-educational manifestation that holds a special place in Serbia’s map of cultural events mostly because of its unique mixture of art, music & nature. From 14 – 29 July 2018, this wonderful city in west Serbia will become the centre of musical happenings for the 9th time. By connecting visual and audio experience on one side and the development of ecological awareness on the other, ARLEMM found the original way to spread the true cultural values among the children and the wider social community. ARLEMM gathers the most eminent artists, professors and pedagogues from different art fields so the visitors can attend various concerts of classical, traditional, spiritual and jazz music. The concerts are held in different venues in Arilje, but the most impressive ones are those on the magical Island Uski Vir on the Rzav river. ARLEMM organizes a summer music school, creative workshops, public classes, studio of singing, and has the special learning program adjusted for the youngest musicians (age 5, 6 and 7). When we add the most prominent names in Serbian musical scene to that (who already visited ARLEMM), like Jovan Kolundzija, Slobodan Trkulja, Stefan Milenkovic, Vlatko Stefanovski and many others, we can easily say that ARLEMM is already recognized as the cultural lighthouse of Western Serbia.
