Institute PerArtem


The Cultural and Artistic Institute PerArtem directs its activities to the field of classical music with special emphasis on Art song that combines music with poetry.

PerArtem’s activities are re-establishing, awakening, freshening and developing performing tradition of Art song in Slovenia and Europe with a wide array of internationally recognized foreign and Slovenian artists.

The purpose of PerArtem is to:

  • awake, preserve and to develop tradition of classical music (Art song) in the wider sense of that term, and possibly to connect it with other art forms.
  • provide facilities in Slovenia and abroad for activity of both Slovenian and foreign artists, and thereby enable inter-cultural dialogue.

The Cultural and Artistic Institute PerArtem was set up to provide:

  • cultural and artistic activities,
  • education,
  • organisation of events,
  • and publishing.

Since 2015, we have been organizing a concert cycle in a Cekinov castle in Ljubljana and National Opera in Maribor. In three years, we provided 22 different repertoires and performed over 40 concerts and co-organization of concerts in Slovenia, Belgium, France, Swiss, Italy and India. Year 2019 we have our productions in National Opera in Maribor and Slovenian Philharmonic in Ljubljana with new name “Art Son-ging”.
