Art festival "Pearl Lake" exists in order to allow young talents from around the world to present their art, culture and tradition. During the ten-day stay in our small but with a big heart country - Macedonia, you can enjoy the beauty of the lake, to learn about our rich history and experience the rare opportunity to stay in a place where it was created Slav alphabet . I sincerely hope that this divine beauty will continue to inspire young talents. I wish you to be inspired, full of creative fervor and become famous!

ARTISTIC DIRECTOR OF THE FESTIVAL

While we were preparing the concept of this year's edition of the "Lake Pearls" Festival, we had a clear goal - to celebrate music and art and to establish strong links and cultural exchanges among young artists from around the world. This cause confirms the idea in which we believe - to constantly search and encourage inspiration among young people, because that,s the only way that classical music can remain "alive". We will try to achieve this through the rich program offered by the Festival: a competition where participants will be evaluated by a highly professional international jury, a concert of the winners, a solemn performance of eminent pianists, numerous excursions and opportunities for reaching contacts with artists from all over the world. In the frames of the Festival we will realize another role in which we deeply believe - educating musicians by providing a master class, for young artists to continue to search for their own excellence and to constantly expand their worldviews.
