The Patrons

Voluntary, nonprofit and exclusive civic association, based in Varaždin, whose members – with their personal social reputation and appropriate financial contribution – directly support not only higher quality of the program and artistic dignity, but also Croatian identity of this unique festival of Baroque music.
In this sense, the main task of members of VBE Patrons’ Club, from the establishment until today, is to provide funds for complete financing of at least one of the festival’s concert. Those funds they gather through membership fee, voluntary Easter concert and personal engagement of each member (in finding sponsors of the festival). By doing this, and joining (in the early beginnings) thirty minor patrons, primer goal of patronage ultimately achieves – “to encourage art improvement by giving money or material goods” (more specifically, art music improvement).
