The Association of Artists “Visoko C”

The Association of Artists “Visoko C” was founded in 2015.

The goals of this association are:

  • project work (operas, pieces with singing, operas for children, musicals)
  • organizing concerts;
  • educating citizens, especially children and youth, about the importance of art;
  • organizing literary, artistic and other festivities accompanied by music;
  • organizing classes in acting, singing, summer courses, camps, etc.

The main goal of the association is to spread our and foreign music culture. Spreading a musical song is not an easy task. We try to guide and introduce the audience to something that they do not have the opportunity to hear and see often, through an educational and fun character.

The Association of Artists “Visoko C” has more than 500 performances behind it. We performed opera for children throughout our country, as well as in the region (Bijeljina, Banja Luka). We participated in the international opera festivals “Operaria” in Novi Sad and “KotorArt” in Kotor in 2019.

In 2018, the association received significant support from the Novi Sad 2021 Foundation during the realization of two operas for children: “Bash Celik” and “Magic Flute”. In 2017, the City Administration for Culture of the City of Novi Sad co-financed the opera for children “Cinderella”, and in 2019 two operas for children: “Puss in Boots” and “In the Emperor of Trojan, Goat Ears”.

Since 2016, thanks to the selfless support of the Cultural Center of Novi Sad and the Foundation “Novi Sad 2021”, we perform at the Cultural Station “Eđšeg”, where we regularly perform our plays. We have also achieved excellent cooperation with the “Vuk Karadzic” theater in Belgrade, where we have been performing with great pleasure since 2016.

Performing operas for children is a necessity in raising children. Building musical taste in the youngest is very important and defines later affinities towards music. The possibility of children’s participation in children’s operas contributes to the development of creativity and strengthening of personality. Children’s operas should be part of the permanent repertoire of every theater.

The arrival of children in the theater and the upgrade of turning, watching and participating in plays into a “need” is something we should all strive for because we will direct them towards true values, towards preserving the culture, which is the backbone of any organized society.
