The Young Musicians Concert series mo. Vinko Lesić is a platform where young musicians can express their artistry, and young audiences can listen to what their peers and individuals close to their age have been working on and the repertoire they enjoy playing. In addition to diligent practice, one of the essential aspects for musicians is a public performance, where they can showcase their musical and stage abilities in front of an audience. To provide young musicians with an opportunity to gain concert experience beyond school and academic events, Juenesses Musicales Split has initiated this competition in collaboration with the Croatian National Theatre Split and the Academy of Arts in Split.
