Macedonian Philharmonic

After 73 years of existence, the RSM Philharmonic finally got its own home. New music temple that will start to write a new history of the oldest national music institution in the country. Situated between the Ilija Nikolovski-Louis State Music and Ballet School and the Macedonian Opera and Ballet, a contemporary concert hall built to world standards for what a space intended for a symphony orchestra should look and function, is a eye-opener. Its rise also meant completing the much-needed musical and artistic dimension of the city.

Philharmonic, with its creative designs of print materials and specific marketing solutions, continues to follow what is mainstream both in Europe and in the world and keep up with new developments in the field of classical and not only classical music art.
