The Friends of Music Association (DPG) is a concert agency that organises classical music concert seasons in Koper and surroundings. DPG was established in 1963 and still is the most important organizer of classical concert activities in the Obalno-kraška region.

By organizing and producing events of high quality, our mission is to break the stereotypes and mitigate the apprehensiveness towards artistic events with classical music, as it is an important part of our rich and common heritage. We believe we should be touched by Music, for which it is not necessary to be musical experts. Our events try to offer a meaningful content beyond the music, that enriches the soul and might allow shifts in human consciousness.

The main DPG activities include the concert cycles “Amabile” and “Vivace”. Beside this the association activities include the coproduction of the International Biennial of Contemporary Music Koper (with the Koper Music School) and the organization or coproduction of seminars, workshops or master classes for young musicians. The newest project “Musical rests” includes thematic artistic events featuring various arts, science and cuisine in order to join high level culture with relaxing presentation to show the audience the beauty, values and importance of our common cultural property.
Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.
Ludwig van Beethoven
