In the center of a very long tradition of music concerts and music stage events organization, THE ZAGREB CONCERT MANAGEMENT (KDZ) is the oldest and largest company dealing in organization of music and other events. The Zagreb Concert Management brings the most esteemed musicians of the world to Croatia, organizes performances of Croatian artists in the country and abroad, and promotes Croatian music and musicians in the world.

The Zagreb Concert Management has also collaborated with numerous Croatian ensembles, individual artists and institutions: Croatian National Theatre Opera of Zagreb, Osijek and of Rijeka, Komedija Zagreb Municipal Theatre, Dubrovnik Summer Festival, Osor Music Evenings, Varaždin Baroque Evenings, Concerts in the Euphrasius's Basilica in Poreč, Music Evenings in St. Donat, Zagreb Quartet, Trio Orlando, Ruža Pospiš-Baldani, Dunja Vejzović, Pavica Gvozdić, Ida Gamulin, Višnja Mažuran, Tonko Ninić, Ljerka Očić, Darko Petrinjak and others, even the youngest generation of our musicians, including Maksim Mrvica, Lovro Pogorelić, Martina Zadro, Dubravka Šeparović-Mušović etc.
Through long cooperation with distinguished foreign partners, KDZ has repeatedly proven its credibility and ability in organizing demanding music events.
In the last year alone, the Zagreb Concert Management has organized more than 300 programs in the country and abroad. Apart from our own cycles in Zagreb, which make up the very peak of Croatia's music offer, there have been numerous concerts and other events around Croatia.
Parallel with the organizational activities, we have been conducting a cultural service through our own publishing efforts, as well as through realization of competitions, music related exhibitions, and many other non-profit events.
Since 1973, a constituent part of the Zagreb Concert Management is also the Music Information Center (MIC). MIC was founded in 1971 by a group of composers and cultural workers in Zagreb as a non-profit organization aiming to document and promote Croatian music in the country and abroad. The services of MIC are primarily directed towards professional musicians, but these services are also available to everyone who needs any kind of information, score-sheets, or anything else related to music in Croatia. MIC is primarily supported by the Croatian Ministry of Culture and The Zagreb City Government.
